I love sweets! I could eat dessert every night–but my body doesn’t always agree. Dealing with PCOS I really have to think about how I eat sweets, when I eat them, and honestly it all just comes down to moderation. One thing that has been such a blessing is the ability to bake with almond flour. Coconut flour is also a beautiful thing too!

The best thing about this healthier version of pineapple upside cake is that you can make it in a skillet. I am obsessed with one skillet anything recipes! I would recommend using a cast iron skillet for this.

How can I get the right amount of sweetness with cherry berry pineapple upside down cake?

Getting the sweetness just right can take some time but I’ve found that raw honey is the best way to go! It provides you with the sweet taste experience from a cake or baked good, in a natural way so you don’t have to worry that you’re harming yourself with refined sugar or an artificial sweetener.
