Vegan pineapple upside-down cake

pineapple upside-down cake

I’ve done it! I made a delicious pineapple upside-down cake that is both delicious and vegan! Yes I know it is a bit messy (ok maybe more then a bit) but it’s not how it looks it’s about how it tastes!! It holds up well and I don’t think it made it through one day (it was eaten to quickly😊😆).
No this cake does not use those red dyed, so unhealthy, jarred cherries you buy at the store, no. These use healthy black cherries that taste better in my opinion.🍒

Pineapple. I buy fresh cored pineapple and slice it myself, but canned will work. (Fresh is best).
Black cherries. I used frozen black cherries but fresh should work too.
Flour. In cakes I usually use all purpose flour but spelt always works too.
Almond milk. I used almond milk but a nut free milk or any dairy free milk will work.
Rice vinegar. Vinegar was used in this cake but I’m sure lemon juice would be a great substitute!
