I whipped up a batch of my pumpkin pudding tonight. The true story is that I didn't buy Nanaimo bars and strawberries at the grocery store this week and something was missing from my life. Then I remembered that I keep the ingredients for this recipe on hand at all times. I have a ton of things in the works and this recipe felt like something I could accomplish tonight.
Pineapple Pecan Upside-Down Cupcakes
It seems like everyone these days has a special diet... or at least everyone in my family. I am no exception. This year my mom's amazing buttercream topped Barbie cake wasn't going work. I made my own cake and gave my mom a deserved break this year.
I created this recipe to be egg free, low FODMAP, and delicious. Low FODMAP is also Gluten Free. Alternative flour cakes tend to be good fresh and then the texture goes downhill after that. I've managed to avoid that problem by avoiding icing which allows you to warm them up right before you eat them.
This is my first go at writing up a recipe for general consumption and I am very excited about the format. It is both easy to follow along and full of extra details. I used the table feature in Pages to organize the recipe. The Sketch app was great for cropping and rotating one of my bunny clipart SVG files. Then I exported it as a PNG to use in Pages and to make the recipe a little more "me". You can preview the recipe below before you download the PDF that you can print.
