Total Time 2 hours



  • 1 Mashed banana
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Golden syrup ( or maple syrup )
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1/2 cup thick vanilla custard ( I used carton custard)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup plain flour

Upside Down Topping

  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup golden syrup ( or maple syrup)
  • 2 1/2 sliced bananas


  • Cooked in a round 5.5 L SC.
  • Line and grease desired cake pan.( I used round)
  • To make the topping , melt the butter , brown sugar and golden syrup ( or maple syrup ) together.
  • Spread evenly in the cake pan . Slice the bananas and place layered over the sauce in a circular pattern.
  • In a large bowl mix together the mashed banana , oil , egg , custard , sugar and syrup. Stir in baking powder , salt and flour and mix until no lumps.
  • Pour mixture over the caramel , banana topping and spread out evenly.
  • Raise up on egg rings or foil balls in your SC and cook on high approx 2 hours, tea towel under the lid . Cake is cooked when a skewer comes out clean . The topping will bubble up over the cake and settle again as it cools. Allow to cool in the tin for approx 20 mins and then turn out onto a serving plate. Best served warm with custard , cream or vanilla IceCream.

  1. This was super easy and delicious to make. I made my own custard and saved some to eat the pudding with. Only problem is I have to eat it all myself ?
