Gluten-Free Tropical Upside Down Cake
As the name implies, an upside cake is baked in a pan like any other cake, but once it’s done the cake is turned upside for serving. We’re giving our gluten-free version of the upside-down cake a mouth-watering topping by adding diced pineapple and papaya soaked in tea and creamed together with coconut sugar and coconut oil. Truly delicious!
