Welcome to our Cast Iron Saturdays
I thought I would search for upside down cakes this week. I have not made one of these in awhile but we do always enjoy them.
A favorite is pineapple upside down cake-I am sharing this recipe because I prefer to use drained crushed pineapple too-it is nicer for serving
Old Fashioned Pineapple Upside Down Cake for gluten free I would use Bobs Red Mill 1-1 gluten free flour blend Other changes to the recipe I would use coconut oil instead of shortening, the cup of sugar I would change to Splenda or a keto white sweetener, the brown sugar I would change to coconut sugar or a keto brown sweetener and the milk can be changed to an unsweetened almond milk or other nut milk
Apple Upside Down Cake For us I would go through the ingredients and change over to a gluten free flour, white sugar replaced with Splenda or a keto sweetener, the brown sugar replaced with coconut sugar or a keto brown sweetener, the milk can be changed to a nut milk The recipe is served with a purchased caramel sauce and there are sugar free and keto versions as well
This is a really delicious sounding recipe. again can change to gluten free with a gluten free flour blend, and for us I would change the sugars to splenda or a keto sweetener The lavender whipped cream sounds amazing
Cast Iron Cranberry Brown Sugar Upside Down Cake
I really like baking with cranberries and this one sounds delicious. For us I would do the same changes as mentioned before with the flour to gluten free flour and changing the sugars to Splenda, Keto, or coconut sugar
Once you find a cake recipe that you really like, just go ahead and experiment with different fruits and/or nuts for the bottom that you really like. I have made upside down cakes with blueberries, wild picked blackberries, fresh pears, peaches etc are good choices too. Use your imagination of what you like and have fun with it.
Serve with fresh cups of percolated coffee-a little more rustic and homey, especially if you have a woodstove going right now that you can brew it on. I loved doing that at the woods home.
