Happy Sunday guys! Is this me saying Happy Sunday? Yeah! I know what you would be thinking — Anu never posts on Sundays. Then why today?
Well, as you know it’s Little-A’s last week of Summer break. So during this last week, we want to spend as much time as we can with her. Also, we have planned another mini-holiday with her. So I won’t be able to post on Monday.
The most beautiful date - Today Little A is out on a date with her daddy. So I am alone at home. That’s why I just declared this Sunday a work day for me. After all, this blog is also my child and I can’t ignore it completely.
Change is good: Instead of Monday I am sharing a recipe today, so I could enjoy a holiday on Monday. Sometimes change is good. 🙂 So here I am writing this post and sipping some coffee along with a slice of cake. Am I doing everything at the same time? Yes, that’s how I am. I do multitasking. I think many of us do it, sometimes all the time. Abhishek always says, “You need to learn how to enjoy life. Take it slowly. Leave your computer aside when you are eating or drinking something. Enjoy the present moment.”
A child in me: I find Abhishek’s words true, so I try to avoid multitasking in front of him. But as you know Little-A and her Daddy dear are not at home today, I have become a multitasker again. I know I am doing something which I shouldn’t do. So why do I do that? Well, maybe it’s not me, it’s a child inside me who forces me to do all the things which are forbidden. 😉
Do what’s right: Now as I have realized that I am doing wrong, so I will enjoy my coffee and cake first and then, I will write this post. So I suggest you all enjoy your coffee first and then come back here. I would also be back by that time. Hehehe, just kidding, you don’t have to go anywhere 🙂
There is no need of a break in the virtual world: That’s the beauty of this virtual world. You don’t really have to wait for me or anyone or anything. At the time when you will be reading this, I must have taken all the breaks and I must have done with all the pauses. 🙂
A pause for 10 mins: Time to enjoy some coffee/cake 😉
Joy is always warm and bright: I am back after that well deserved, first undesired and then desired pause. It’s a beautiful and warm day. I must say that enjoying the sunshine while sipping cold coffee and eating a cake in silence was the best thing ever. #Grateful
Silence is a wondrous therapy: I listened to the music of silence. Loved it entirely. You will also love such things especially when your li’l ones are at home 24×7 when they don’t take a nap, and when they talk endlessly. Then you’d surely want some time for yourself when you do nothing. Just sit and do nothing. It is relaxation in itself. 🙂
I have done that now, and I feel fully charged and ready to talk about today’s recipe.
It’s Banana Pineapple Upside Down Cake. Yes, it’s an upside down cake. As the name suggests, it has bananas, and it also has juicy pineapple. This is also full of caramelized goodness.
I love caramel: The first thing which I have always loved about upside-down cakes is their spectacular caramel flavor. The second best thing is that the process of baking a cake and flipping it works as a stress buster for some people including me. The third best thing is that it doesn’t require any frosting at all. But if you are like me then you won’t mind to go that extra mile and add some desired toppings. 😉
Upside-Down Cakes are jaw-droppingly good: They are best to eat straight out of the pan. No doubt pineapple makes one of the best upside-down cakes. But why should only pineapples have all the fun? Why can’t bananas join the party? Bananas should be there as well. So why not combining bananas with pineapples? I love caramelized bananas and this cake exactly gives me the same feel of eating bananas sautéed with butter and brown sugar. Just so so good. Thus, I combined juicy pineapple with sweet banana pieces to create a beautiful and moist cake for the whole family to enjoy.
If you love tea time cakes, then you would also love this tutti frutti cake.
No fancy ingredients: This cake doesn’t need any fancy things. Just a simple basic cake batter. Also, I didn’t add any butter to the batter, so it’s not overly buttery.
Topping takes it to next level: I topped this slightly warm cake with whipped cream, some nuts, glazed cherries, bananas, and pineapples. And tada, the best Banana Pineapple Upside Down Cake is ready to eat! 🙂
Moist and crisp delight: This stunning Banana Pineapple Upside Down Cake makes a great dessert, tea time snack, brunch or even breakfast. This upside-down cake is moist and has a crisp edge. Baked and then served flipped over.
