Banana Upside Down Cake

I've taken banana bread just about as far as it can go with David Lebovitz's Banana Upside Down Cake. It's wonderful.

I've been thinking about old Victorian homes that come with linen closets and butler's pantries and broom closets. There have been several great articles in Martha on making your own hidden storage - a craft space from two bookcases and an office in an armoire. I like this "origami living" style.

The woman at www.inthepantry.blogspot.com has written a book about pantries.

That looks awesome, and so delish!

I love the bookcases-turned-armoire-with-hidden-craft-space. (Sort of like Churchill's description of Russia: "a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.") How very clever of the Martha people. The office space idea is good, too, and could be adapted to fit under a staircase.

Yum. I've been waiting for the time and the right moment for Cranberry Almond Upside Down Cake. I have the recipe from an ooooold MSLiving, but I'll bet it's on the website, too.
