Donna Hay's sticky orange and vanilla upside-down cake recipe

Sticky Orange and Vanilla Upside Down Cake recipe: Donna Hay, The Times 19 February 2012

Banana Poppy Seed Cake with Vanilla Bean Frosting ~ this is an old fashioned kind of cake.  A wholesome, whip it up in a jiffy and eat it any time of the day or night kind of cake.  Low to the ground, nothing to hide.  An unassuming little 8×8 inch square made with a mere cup of flour and a couple of mashed bananas, all slathered with an honest lashing of cream cheese and vanilla bean goodness. That handful of everyday ingredients pulls together to make a really special cake…I’m not sure if…

The view from Great Island: Banana Poppy Seed Cake with Vanilla Bean Frosting, absolutely fantastic! I just used regular frosting but I'm sure the vanilla bean would have made it even better, definitely making this again
