How to Make WHOLE GRAIN PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place 1/4 cup butter in a 9 inch round baking pan; heat in oven until melted. Remove pan from oven and tilt pan to coat bottom and sides.
  2. Mix coconut sugar, nutmeg & cinnamon together and sprinkle onto bottom of buttered pan.
  3. Spread pineapple over sugar mixture.
  4. For batter - in a large bowl, beat butter and coconut sugar until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla and pineapple juice.
  5. In another bowl, whisk flours, baking powder and salt together. Add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. I add it in thirds.
  6. Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool 10 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate.
