White bean Vanilla Cake – From the Modern Alternative Mama

When we were getting closer to Aidalyn’s birthday party, I knew I didn’t want her to have a “typical” birthday cake loaded with processed sugar and non-nutrients. I did a lot of digging. I wanted something that was grain free but didn’t have a lot of hard to find ingredients. I found this to be easy and very tasty too! I ended up making a cream cheese frosting with just a block of cream cheese mixed some milk to make it smooth. I may have sweetened it with a touch of agave nectar. Sophie and Aidalyn seemed to approve!

I baked mine as cupcakes – seeing that we were having a “cupcake” themed party.

    • I was very surprised how good it turned out. It was lighter than you may think – cooking with wheat flour always makes for a dense cake, this was a good light consistency.
