This is delicious. most people do not put bananas in their upside down cake, but everyone I know seems to just love it. it also, makes a beautiful presentation at Christmas time, if you use red and green maraschino cherries.

Loved it! I used a white cake mix, substituted pineapple juice + 3 tablespoons Southern Comfort + water to equal the water called for on the cake mix package. Yummy, moist, and beautiful. Best compliment of all was the utter silence as everyone devoured their slice! P.S. This recipe doesn't include the cake mix, so the numbers are off, you should correct it.
