I didn’t really appreciate the power of warm pineapple until I made this paleo pineapple upside down cake. I was able to fully appreciate its charm.

Despite the fact that it is a grain-free and dairy-free alternative, this buttery cake has a flavor that is astonishingly comparable to that of the well-known classic cake.

My Almond Flour Fig Cake served as the inspiration for this recipe; the primary variation is that I used fresh pineapple pieces and raspberries for the figs that were called for in the original recipe.

How to Make Paleo Pineapple Upside Down Cake:

Bake at a temperature of 350 degrees Fahrenheit. A spring form pan of 8 inches in diameter should be lightly sprayed, and the bottom should be lined with parchment paper. To do this, trace the pan on the parchment paper, and then cut out a circle that fits precisely in the bottom.

It is important to note that you can also prepare this cake using a pie pan, a standard cake pan, or a skillet made of cast iron.

To ensure that the liquid ingredients are thoroughly mixed together, place the eggs, avocado oil, pure maple syrup, cider vinegar, and pure vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl and whisk them together.

Make sure to incorporate the dry ingredients, which include baking soda, sea salt, and almond flour, until you have a cake mixture that is thick and smooth.

The bottom of the skillet that has been prepared should have one tablespoon of pure maple syrup poured into it. Place a raspberry in the middle of each pineapple ring that you arrange on the bottom of the pan. Arrange the pineapple rings in a sphere.

To achieve a wonderful light coating of syrup, move the pineapple pieces about in the pure maple syrup before arranging them in a decorative design. This will ensure that the syrup is evenly distributed.

You have the option of slicing an additional two to three pineapple rings in half and line the sides of the cake pan with the pineapple ring halves. This is something you can do if you so desire.

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 8-inch spring form pan, and line the bottom with parchment paper (to do so, trace the pan on parchment and cut out a circle that fits perfectly in the bottom). Note: you can also use a cast iron skillet, pie pan, or regular cake pan to make this cake!
  • Add all of the ingredients for the cake batter to a high-powered blender. Blend until completely smooth (note: the batter will be very thick – this is normal). Note: you can also use a mixing bowl to prepare the cake batter instead of a blender if you’d prefer.
  • Pour one tablespoon of pure maple syrup into the bottom of the prepared pan. Arrange pineapple rings and raspberries on the bottom of the pan, moving them around in the pure maple syrup before arranging them in a decorative pattern to get a nice light coat of syrup. If you’d like, you can slice an additional 2 to 3 pineapple rings in half and use the pineapple ring halves to line the sides of the pan. Pour in the cake batter and use a rubber spatula to smooth it into an even layer.
  • Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes, or until the top appears golden brown and the cake tests clean. Baked goods are considered fully cooked once they reach an internal temperature of 190 to 200 degrees F. You can insert a digital thermometer into the center of the cake to verify it is baked through if you’d like.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool 20 minutes. Release the mold on the spring form pan and turn the cake over onto a cutting board, serving plate, or cake stand. Peel off and discard the parchment paper. Cut into thick slices and serve!

 

Notes

You can also use melted (and cooled) coconut oil, olive oil, almond oil, or 1/3 cup of melted butter
