Upside Down Bananas Foster Cake

I made this last week for a simple dinner with a group of friends.  I can tell you its simple to make and pretty in its presentation.  The flavors blend nicely together as the sugars caramelize the bananas and pecans.  The recipe is from the 2011 November Southern Living.

The recipe calls for rum of course but I didn't have any in the house so I used Kahula, the subtle taste was wonderful.  The recipe also calls for All Purpose Baking Mix (I took that to be Bisquick) since I don't care for this brand I substituted another all purpose mix.

So if you're looking for something a little different to serve on Thanksgiving or anytime this one is a great treat.

Such a wonderful dessert and a great trip down memory lane! When my son was little, he loved to order banana's foster when we went out to a fancy restaurant. This recipe looks divine. My son is coming home in 2 weeks and I'm making this for him!
You are such a dear to share it with me and all of our ON THE MENU MONDAY friends!
