Gluten Free Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Celebrate those special occasions with this Dairy Free and Gluten Free Pineapple Upside Down Cake. An easy yummy treat!
Happy Valentine’s Day Foodies! Although we aren’t big V-Day celebrants, I was inspired to share this Gluten Free Pineapple Upside Down Cake to celebrate. Maybe because it is one of my mum’s favourite cakes and her birthday is just a few days after Valentine’s Day.
I don’t know about you, but every year when I look at Valentine’s Day recipes I always see the common flavours such as chocolate, red velvet, cheese cake and similar type cakes. So I felt something different like this Gluten Free Pineapple Upside Down Cake was somthing fun and different to share. Especailly when it’s bake in a heart shape pan to give that festive V-Day twist.
How to make this Gluten Free Pineapple Upside Down Cake?
My grandmother on my mum’s side was the baker in my family. She was famous for her Chocolate Cakes and Pineapple Upside Down Cakes. Although this recipe isn’t quite how she would make it, this version uses my sponge cake recipe as the cake base, to give a light but flavouriful cake.
I have made Gluten Free Pineapple Upside Down Cakes using the traditional cake base recipe and even a 1-2-3-4 cake recipe. I even baked them in Jars with our Pineapple Upside Down Cake Jars (although they aren’t turned upside down.) But out of all, this is the one that everyone loves the most. Plus it combines my love of sponge cake with fruit, so a win-win I think.
What you need to make this Gluten Free Pineapple Upside Down cake?
The other thing I love about this recipe, is that it uses ingredients I usually have on hand.
- Pineapple Slices in juice
- Maraschino Cherries (although sometimes I uses frozen strawberries or even leave them out)
- Gluten Free 1:1 Baking Flour
How simple is that?
