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.

Original post from the Modern Alternative Mama:

White Bean Vanilla Cake


  • 3 c. white beans, cooked and plain
  • 9 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 c. + 2 tbsp. raw honey
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda


Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on medium, then high until smooth.  Pour into two well-greased  9″ pans and bake at 350 for 35 – 40 min.  Once cooled, remove from the pans carefully and serve plain, with fresh jam (fruit blended with honey), fresh fruit, or however you like!

  1. Just found out Dot has subscribed to your blog! I think I may try this for small group in a couple of weeks.

    • 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.
