Pineapple Upside Down Cake (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Updated on March 8, 2015

Turn that frown upside down...

.....and yeah...the number on the scale is going down too! This recipe takes the cake with its low carb flours and low glycemic index natural sweeteners. Chickpea, teff and almond flours give this cake its structure. The caramelized pineapple and maple agave syrup are the tops in this dynamite dessert. It makes a lovely presentation for guests and for your appearance as well! Sprinkle Maraschino Cherries and blueberries on top and make this a great Fourth of July Pic-Nic item. Why not do the all american thing and crown it with a dollop of non-dairy, low-cal whipped topping. This cake is King!
