Vegan Strawberry Rhubarb Upside Down Cake

Posted by in 4th of July, Cooking, Sweets | 2 comments














Hello & Happy Thursday!!






If there is one summer inspired combo I love, it’s strawberry and rhubarb! Something about rhubarb instantly drew me in. It looks like red celery, is only available in the summer, is perfection when sweetened, and pairs seamlessly with strawberries!


Whatever it may be, I’m just all about it!!


To date I’ve produced countless strawberry rhubarb concepts, but one I had yet explore was an upside down cake. What I love about upside down cakes is you simply throw it together, place the fruit on the bottom and boom, you instantly have a gorgeously decorated cake!








What’s fab about this particular cake, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, buttery soft, less added sugar, packed with fruit, no dairy or eggs, not even vegan eggs,  you can use the base for endless vegan vanilla cake options, it’s perf for summer, great for entertaining, has aesthetic appeal and is just such a staple!!
