Upside-Down Berry Christmas Cake (Recipe)

If you’re looking for a festive treat these holidays that you can enjoy guilt-free than these dense upside-down berry Christmas Cakes are a must.

Using whole food ingredients, this Christmas cake not only tastes festively yum, but it is also a much healthier option than other refined treats that perhaps won’t leave you feeling your merriest.

This cake can also be made into mini-cakes for individual serving sizes, which when plated up is sure to impress at your holiday dinner party. Simply follow the same directions, but cook in either mini cake tins or large silicon muffin cups and for a shorter amount of time (approx. 30 minutes). For a gluten-free version, the spelt flour can be substituted for rice flour.
