Upside Down Apple Cake

We discovered a new cooking show on PBS called Jazzy Vegetarian.  Laura Theodore made this delicious Apple Cake that isn't too sweet.  Of course you can always add more sugar but I don't think you'll need it.

Upside Down Apple Cake
3     medium apples, sliced
1     medium apple, diced
2     tablespoons soy butter
4     teaspoons brown sugar
1/4  teaspoons cinnamon
2     bananas, mashed
1     cup pastry flour
1     cup whole wheat flour
3     teaspoons baking powder
1/2  teaspoons salt
1/2  cup raisins  (I used dry cherries)
1/2  cup brown sugar
1     cup vanilla soy/almond milk (I used regular and added vanilla)
1/4  cup olive oil

Grease an 8x8 pan then add parchment paper.
Slice 3 apples.  Heat pan and add 2 T. soy butter to pan.  Melt butter, add 4 T. brown sugar and cinnamon. Heat until all is melted, add apples and stir. Take off heat and let soak.  Add apples to prepared pan.
Mash 2 bananas and whip with fork, set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In separate bowl, add flour, baking powder, salt and whisk together. Add l apple diced, raisins, 1/2 cup brown sugar and mix.
Add soy milk, vanilla, 1/4 cup olive oil and mashed banana.  Batter should be thick - don't stir too much.
Bake 50-55 minutes.  Let cool, then flip over the cake onto dish so sliced caramelized apples are on top.
