I’m about to turn your keto world upside down!
I’m a self-proclaimed pineapple upside down cake fanatic! I could sit and eat it all day, every day, but sadly it’s not keto-friendly… but this keto pineapple cake with cherry glaze sure is! 😃
Today I’m sharing with you my newest low carb dessert creation – a keto pineapple-infused cake with a sweet and fruity cherry glaze. This delicious cake delivers that crave-worthy pineapple taste without all of the added sugar and carbs.
This keto cake is deliciously moist, addicting, and has a yummy caramelized butter taste thanks to my go-to brown Swerve keto sweetener (love this stuff!). Plus, don’t forget to drizzle this keto pineapple cake with our sweet cherry glaze… it’s literally the cherry on the top! 🍒
I bet you’re wondering how we got the fruity flavors in there while keeping it keto…
The secret is in the extract! Pineapple extract is the perfect substitution to replace the sugared pineapple that you typically use when making an upside-down cake. And then for the cherry, we used the same extract brand as our favorite banana extract to really bring the glaze to another level.

My team member, Jenna, gave this recipe a test for me, and here’s what she had to say:
“I knew the minute I smelled the batter that this was going to be a home run dessert. My house smelled so yummy while the cake was baking in the oven. I love the caramelized bottom, and how light and fluffy this cake is! And of course, the cherry glaze really brings it all together.” – Jenna
