Apple Berry Upside-Down Cake - Dairy and Gluten Free


Apple Berry Upside-Down Cake

Ingredients:
1/2 Cup Vegetable Spread or Butter
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1/3 Cup Coconut Palm Sugar (or regular)
1 Vanilla Gluten Free Cake Mix (or regular)
3 Eggs cracked and beaten slightly
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
1/2 Cup Milk of choice ( I used Coconut this time)
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. NuNaturals Liquid Vanilla Flavored Stevia

1 Granny Smith Apple sliced in 1/4 inch slices.
About 10 ripe Blackberries

Melt 1/2 Cup Vegetable Spread or Butter on low in an 10" Iron Skillet.
Mix in 1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
and 1/3 Cup Coconut Palm Sugar with the melted butter.

Stir and allow the sugar to melt down on low heat.
If you don't have Palm, all Brown Sugar is fine too.

While the sugars are melted down, mix the cake batter and slice apples

Cake:       Mix together all ingredient in a bowl to form a lumpy batter.
1 Vanilla Gluten Free Cake Mix (or regular)
3 Eggs cracked and beaten slightly
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
1/2 Cup Milk of choice ( I used Coconut this time)
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. NuNaturals Liquid Vanilla Flavored Stevia

Set batter aside, stir the sugar butter mixture, slice up apples.
When the butter and sugar is mixed and melted together, arrange apples and blackberries on top of the sugar mix. 
You can keep the pan on low heat this whole time.
When fruit is arranged, slowly pour cake batter on top of fruit
(mine floated up some into the batter so I didn't invert the cake after it baked)
Cover the pan loosely and cook on low for 30 minutes or until cake is firm to the touch.
It will look slightly underdone compared to most cakes because of the sugar / butter mix
but let it rest and it should be okay.

This cake was so moist, sweet and fruity.  Really made the whole house smell like a fresh bakery...
The cinnamon, apple and berries, along with the vanilla cake, delicious!
I'm keeping this in the fridge, it's going quickly.
I'll definitely be trying this same method with other fruits and cake flavors too.

Thanks for all the NuNaturals Giveaway entries!
