Vegan Pineapple Upside Down Cake Recipe

Vegan Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Just about a month ago, I asked Joe what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday. Ya know, chocolate? Vanilla? Strawberry, Heck, maybe pistachio? He said Pineapple Upside-Down Cake. Oh, okay.

I had never made it before, and I have to admit. I was nervous! It looks like it takes so much time and effort. Boy, was I wrong. I baked this bad boy in under an hour. SO EASY! My recipe is based off this one. If you want a holiday cake that is stunning and delicious, this is the easy recipe for you. Especially since today is Christmas Eve… I’m talking to all of those last minute ladies!

The Recipe

Oven: 350 F
Time: 30-35 min

You will need:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • Fresh or canned pineapple rings
  • Maraschino cherries
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ t. baking powder
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • ½ t. salt
  • 2/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbs ground flaxseed, 9 tbs warm water
  • ¼ cup agave nectar
  • 3/4 almond milk
  • 1 6oz So Delicious vanilla yogurt

To make:

Step 1: Prep Baking Dish

Step 2: Mix Dry Ingredients
Flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and brown sugar – combine in a small bowl!

Step 3: Mix Wet Ingredients
Create your “vegan egg” by combining the flaxseed and warm water. Set aside for a second while you dump the agave, almond milk, yogurt, and canola oil into a large bowl. Lastly, add the flaxseed and mix well.

Step 4: Combine and Add to Dish
Add your dry ingredients to wet – mix well and add to your already decorated dish! Like so:

Step 5: Bake, Cool, and Turn
Bake at 350 F for about 30-35 min. God, it is going to smell real good, people!! Allow to cool for about a half hour before flipping over. This ensures that nothing falls apart!
