Gluten-Free Pineapple Upside Down Cake | Eggless Baking

More gluten-free baking @ Annarasa. Today I am sharing my go to recipe for a gluten free Pineapple Upside Down cake. This is a very simple recipe that is also eggless. It yields a very light, delicious dessert cake. Enjoy with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

1 cup + 2tbsp gluten-free 1:1 baking flour 
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup cooking oil 
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup yogurt
1/4 cup sour cream 
1/2 cup milk
For Topping:
4 tablespoons Butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups pineapple chunks, fresh 

  1. First prepare the topping. Pour the butter into a 9 inch round cake pan that is at least 2 inches deep. 
  2. Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the butter.
  3. Arrange the pineapple chunks on the sugar in a circular pattern.
  4. Set the pan aside while preparing the cake batter.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375F. Sift the flour, salt, baking powder and cream of tarter together in a mixing bowl.
  6. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the oil and sugar. Once it is creamy, add the yogurt, sour cream, milk, and lemon juice. Whisk until all ingredients are well blended.
  7. Now add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix well and the continue whisking for a couple of minutes. 
  8. Pour this prepared batter onto the butter, sugar, pineapple layer in the cake pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes at 375F until the center of the cake is baked through.
  9. If the top of the cake is browning too fast, cover the cake with a foil for the lat 10 minutes of baking.
  10. Remove the cake from the oven, cool in pan on a wire rack for 20 minutes.
  11. Then gently invert the slightly cooled cake onto a cake stand or serving plate.
  12. Cool cake to room temperature before slicing and enjoying.
Good to Know
  • Use a half cup applesauce in place of sour cream for a softer spongier cake.
  • Cooking oil can be any type that does not carry it own smell: canola or vegetable oil are best.
  • For a richer taste, use butter for baking.
  • Pineapple chunks and be fresh or from a can. If from a can, pat them dry with a kitchen towel before use.
