Blueberry Upside Down Cake

After my awesome outing of blueberry picking with my friend I was left with a few too many blueberries that I didn’t want to freeze so I came up with this.  This has to be the best Paleo cake that I have made or tasted.  The blueberries bring most of the sweetness and seep through the cake keeping it nice and moist.  This is a must make for any party, whether paleo or not, no one will ever know its good for them.  :)  Enjoy

  1. This looks really yummy, and I’d like to try it. One question, though. What size baking pan do you use? I don’t see a pan size mentioned anywhere.

  2. Just made this using thawed but previously frozen blueberries….Oh my god, it is unbelievably delicious!!! We will definitely make this again, and again, and again….Thanks so much for sharing!!!!! Kiddos are on Cloud 9 right now :)

  3. …will this recipe work the same with Coconut milk that does NOT have Guar Gum in it?? I avoid Guar Gum and buy coconut milk that doesn’t contain emulsifiers and/or make my own :)


  4. I made this today and it was so good! I was not sure about the blueberry cinnamon combination, so I used apples in place of them. The result was really good. I love your recipes! I’ve always said most Paleo baked goods recipes are a crap shoot however, everyone of yours has turned out awesome without fail! You Rock!

  5. Word! So good! I used frozen blueberries and didn’t add any ice cream or top w anything. My kids and I are killing this right now!

  6. OMG!!!! I’m baking up a storm today and just made this cake! Again, OMG! This cake is amazing!!!! The cake portion is perfectly spiced and the blueberry/maple syrup is spot on!! My 4 year old kept coming back for more. This tops my list of fave paleo sweets! I’m thinking about subbing rhubarb or fresh pineapple for the base! I’m in LOVE!

  7. I’d love to make this, but my husband is allergic to nuts and can’t have the almond flour (coconut flour is fine). Can I make this just using coconut flour? Or is there some other workaround?

  8. Frozen blueberries would make it worse when they defrosted. Mine was very moist, about halfway through the cake was soaked with them

  9. How do you keep your cake from turning very wet and mushy from the moisture in the blueberries? It was still delicious, but very mushy…

    Perhaps because I used frozen blueberries?

  10. I have whats probably a stupid question buuuuut here goes… when you refer to "Coconut Milk" in your ingredients list, you're referring to canned, unsweetened, full-fat milk like from Thai Kitchen, right? or are you referring to the drinking coconut milk by So Delicious?

    Thanks, Love your recipes :) you're my go to man

  11. I avoid all dairy, I haven't ventured down grass fed dairy yet either, you can use Ghee or Grass fed butter if you prefer

  12. Do you avoid dairy as a whole, hence using coconut oil, or do you just prefer the taste? Coconut and my tongue don't get along, so I would sub butter… but I'm curious your reasons for picking the former.
