Normally I steer towards chocolaty desserts, but every once in a while I get a craving for something fruity. I had in mind something with pear, something with gingerbread, and something that I could flip!  So what did I craft for this very specific craving:

Gingerbread Pear Upside-Down Cake {Gluten Free, Dairy Free}

The recipe itself was really straight forward. Sprinkle brown sugar on the bottom of a greased pan. Lay sliced pears on top of the sugar {in a pinwheel layout}. Pour the gingerbread cake batter on top.

Then bake:

The gingerbread cake is fluffy and flavorful.

Once the cake has cooled for at least 10mins, place a serving tray or dish on top of the pan.

Then FLIP!

The pears have a nice brown sugar glaze which coats the entire cake and serves as a frosting of sorts.

Want the RECIPE? How about a slice of cake? Believe me, I have extra.  Here you go:
