1/2 c
pecans, chopped
1/2 c
unsalted butter, softened and divided
1 c
light brown sugar, firmly packed
2 Tbsp
ripe bananas
3/4 c
granulated sugar
large eggs
3/4 c
1/2 c
sour cream
1 tsp
vanilla extract
2 c
baking mix (bisquick)
1/4 tsp


1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake pecans in a single layer 8 to 10 minutes (watch carefully) or until toasted and fragrant, stirring once.
2Melt 1/4 cup butter in a lightly greased 10-inch cast-iron skillet (or 9-inch cake pan with sides at least 2 inches high) over low heat. Remove from heat; stir in brown sugar and rum.
3Cut bananas diagonally into 1/4 inch thick slices; arrange in concentric circles over brown sugar mixture. Sprinkle pecans over bananas.
4Beat granulated sugar and remaining 1/4 cup butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Add milk and next two ingredients; beat just until blended. Beat in baking mix and cinnamon until blended (batter will be slightly lumpy). Pour batter over mixture in skillet. Place skillet on a foil-lined jelly-roll pan.
5Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in skillet on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edge to loosen. Invert onto a serving plate, spooning any topping in skillet over cakes.
