Sometimes, I make really good food. And this spin on an upside down cake is one of my favorites.



I made this for a Halloween party and my friends really liked it. If you’re wondering if it got good reviews because my friends are polite, I assure you that is not the case.

Happy Halloween!


I don’t know if there’s such a thing as ‘Halloween food.’ But I know ‘party food’ exists, and this is definitely a recipe that qualifies as that!

  1. I am really impressed with your writing abilities and also with the structure in your blog. Is that this a paid topic or did you customize it your self? Either way keep up the excellent high quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one these days..

  3. Sounds good but can you please post a link to the recipe? I thought it was a mobile site limitation but the link to caramel loads and displays fine. This page, however only shows ingredients but no recipe. I’m guessing it’s combine and bake at 350 but the recipe would be great. I’ve got a load of bananas to use (even after freezing ½ of them). Thanks
