You’ll love the caramelized pineapples and sweet cherries topping on this homemade gluten-free pineapple upside-down cake. The yellow cake is buttery sweet and everyone can enjoy this gluten-free dessert.
Back in my grain-eating days, I prided myself on my pineapple upside-down cake. Seriously people asked me for the recipe all the time and the sad thing was that it was box cake mix that I just jazzed up with a ton of butter and sugar.
I had to use butter for the Gluten-free Pineapple Upside Down Cake recipe because the flavor of butter and coconut sugar is what makes this taste true to me.
A couple of notes.
You need to let this sit out for 15 minutes before diving in.
The top of the cake needs to dry out a touch. If you want this to have a slightly more caramelized top, you can add more coconut sugar.
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup Superfine Blanched Almond Flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1/2 cup of pineapple juice, taken from the can
- 1/4 cup of coconut sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 1/2 cup milk of choice
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1 cup of crushed pineapple drained, 32 oz can of crushed pineapple -save juice
- 1 tablespoon of coconut sugar
- 5 fresh or frozen cherries
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8" round baking pan.
- Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of coconut sugar on the bottom and then place the cherries.
- Cover the crushed pineapple in a thin layer over the top, and pour the melted butter over the top and then set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl combine the cake ingredients and mix with an wooden spoon until completely blended.
- Pour over the pineapple and place in your oven to bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and let cool. Flip the cake onto a platter and then let sit for 15 minutes before chomping!
