My husband LOVES banana’s foster and I love to bake, so when my Mother-in-Law came across this recipe in Southern Living Magazine, she tore it out for me.
Recipe from Southern Living Magazine
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1/2 cup butter, softened and divided
- 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons rum
- 2 ripe bananas
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose baking mix (Note: this is not regular flour. Look for Bisquick pancake and baking mix)
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°. Bake pecans in a single layer 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring once.
Melt 1/4 cup butter in a lightly greased 10-inch cast-iron skillet or 9-inch round cake pan (with sides that are at least 2 inches high) over low heat. Remove from heat; stir in brown sugar and rum.
Cut bananas diagonally into 1/4-inch-thick slices; arrange in concentric circles over brown sugar mixture. Sprinkle pecans over bananas.
Beat granulated sugar and remaining 1/4 cup butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Add milk and next 2 ingredients; beat just until blended. Beat in baking mix and cinnamon until blended. (Batter will be slightly lumpy.) Pour batter over mixture in skillet. Place skillet on a foil-lined jelly-roll pan.
Bake at 350° for 40 to 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in skillet on a wire rack 10 minutes. Run a knife around edge to loosen. Invert onto a serving plate, spooning any topping in skillet over cake.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!
