TWD & BWJ: Fresh Rhubarb Upside Down Baby Cakes

Okay. So I didn't use rhubarb and I made one large cake instead of baby cakes. Still I would recommend this recipe.  The cake is moist and flavorful. The caramel-pecan topping is rich and delicious. I didn't use rhubarb because we're not crazy about it and I couldn't find it at the one grocery where I looked.  Fortunately, this is a versatile recipe that can accommodate any number of fruits. We had lots of bananas on hand, so that is what I used.

I did have a little trouble taking the cake out of the cake pan, as you can tell from the photo. It just kind of slipped out. Next time, I might use more pecans and fruit in the topping.
I have to say that left to my own devices, I would never have tried this recipe. Both the rhubarb and baby cake aspects did not appeal to me. But it is one awesome cake. And even though it didn't look very pretty, it disappeared very quickly.
