Citrus Almond Olive Oil Upside Down Cake

  • Units:
  • Course: Desserts


  • 1/3 cup 79 ml flaxseed ground
  • 1/3 cup 79 ml almond flour
  • 1 cup 237 ml rice flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup 59 ml olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup 59 ml agave syrup
  • 1/3 cup 79 ml orange juice
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup 158 ml almond milk
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 orange blood orange, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 grapefruit peeled and thinly sliced
  • 8 kumquat peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp apricot jam warmed

Ingredients for the Whipped Coconut Cream

  • 15 oz 425 g coconut milk canned
  • 1 tsp agave nectar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 400 F and grease a 9 inch cake pan.

In a medium bowl, stir together the flaxseed, flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Using a standing mixer or hand mixer, cream together the olive oil with the rosemary and agave nectar until smooth, about 3 minutes. Add the orange juice, vanilla extract, almond milk, and apple cider vinegar to the bowl, stirring to combine. On low speed, mix in the dry ingredients little by little until just incorporated.

Arrange the sliced citrus on the bottom of the greased cake pan. Pour the batter over the citrus and bake for 25-35 minutes, until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a plate. Brush with 2 tablespoons of the apricot jam.

Serve with whipped coconut cream.

Whipped coconut cream

Set the can in the fridge overnight so that the coconut fat solids separate from the coconut water. Open the can and carefully pour out the thick coconut cream. With an electric whisk, beat the cream, agave, and vanilla extract on high until peaks form, about 2-3 minutes. If not serving immediately, place the bowl of whipped coconut cream in the fridge and then beat it again right before serving it.
