What a weird winter. We’ve had a few cold spells, but nothing terrible, and it seems like we’ve had more unseasonably warm days here in Maryland. There’s been almost no snow, but it has been somewhat damp even when it’s not raining. So you would think this would all be a good thing, right?
You guys, this warmish, dampish winter is prime conditions for… GERMS! And my house has certainly fallen victim. So far the count is two stomach bugs, four sinus infections, a smattering of colds, and one round of strep throat. And we still have to make it through February and early March.
I think I need to move to the tropics, but in the meantime time I suppose I’ll have to settle for bringing the tropics into my home with a little taste of sunshine…
Gluten Free Pineapple Upside Down Cake for Two will bring a little sunshine to your house too.
Dole Sunshine, that is! And it doesn’t get much easier to make these fun little cakes. Melt some butter and honey together, put in the bottom of a couple of ramekins, add a Dole Pineapple Slice, stir together a few simple ingredients, and bake. Then flip them over on a plate and get ready to dig in.
Yes, they are gluten free, but that shouldn’t stop anyone from making these wee bitty gluten free pineapple upside down cakes. I am not a fan of having to mix together a laundry list of different flours and starches and gums, so these little guys are made with just almond flour and oat flour (which is just oats ground in a blender), yet they still have a nice, moist, cakey texture. Plus with the nutrition in those ingredients, as well as the pineapple, and the fact that they are sweetened only with a bit of honey, this is a sweet treat that you can feel good about serving to the kiddos or enjoying yourself.
Want cake for the family? Each person can have half a cake with a scoop of ice cream or frozen yogurt, or simply double the recipe. It doesn’t take any longer to make and you can each still have your own cake.
