Highlight the bright flavor of kiwi with this fresh Paleo Upside-Down Cake!
This upside-down cake is like no other! Sweetened with bananas and accented with creamy cashew butter, this cake is reminiscent of banana bread with a burst of fresh kiwis on top.
Kiwis have a fresh, tart flavor, and their little seeds add a crunchy texture that’s distinct from any other fruit. However, they can be tricky to peel! Instead of using a peeler, you can slice off the ends, then place a spoon between the flesh and the kiwi. Make a circular motion with the spoon around the flesh to remove the kiwi in one piece from the flesh. Then all you need to do is slice!
To make the kiwi upside-down cake, you’ll mix a dry mixture of coconut flour and cinnamon into a wet mixture of cashew butter, coconut sugar and eggs. You can substitute other Paleo-friendly nut butters for the cashews – just make sure it’s creamy and made from raw nuts. The creaminess of the nut butter is what gives the cake a smooth and velvety texture! Bake the cake until slightly browned, then let it cool at least 30 minutes before flipping it onto a wire rack.
This kiwi upside-down cake is best served warmed with a little homemade coconut yogurt or coconut ice cream on top. Enjoy as a healthy dessert, or make for your next brunch gathering!
