Easy Blender Cake

Many of you know that my son Kai LOVES his superheros! This little boy is so cute about how much he loves them! My older son has a very clean room, he likes organization in every aspect of his life. Kai, however, doesn’t. He thrives in chaos and his room represents this. Except in one way… his superheros. He lays them out all in a row in an organized fashion on his pillow when he leaves for the day.

He also made a birthday chart of when their birthdays are. If you remember, Ant-Man had a birthday party earlier this year and I made him a Little Debbie Birthday Cake. Well, this time it was Captain America’s birthday and I didn’t have a lot of time. I needed something easy so I decided to throw all the ingredients into my blender and see if it worked.

IT DID WORK! This Blender Cake is not just EASY, it is DELICIOUS! I had many recipe testers test this Easy Blender Cake and they all were very impressed! One tester mentioned it was extremely moist, but that is what I was aiming for. I wanted an ooey gooey cake.

My son Kai is also a true Ethiopian at heart. He loves coffee! So I used coffee in the cake instead of water, but if you are like me and caffeine free for hormone health, you can use water (or unsweetened almond milk) in the cake batter.

  • 1 1/2 cups Natural Sweetener or equivalent natural sweetener
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond or cashew milk
  • 1/2 cup butter melted (or coconut oil if dairy free)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Redmond Real Salt
  • 1 cup very hot water or coffee


  • ½ cups Natural Sweetener or equivalent
  • 1/2 cup butter melted (or coconut oil if dairy free)
  • ½ cup cream cheese softened (Kite Hill cream cheese spread if dairy free)
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk or heavy cream
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans for garnish (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a bundt pan really well with butter.
  • Put the natural sweetener, almond milk, butter, eggs and vanilla into a blender and pulse until well-blended and smooth. Add the almond flour, cocoa powder, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Pour the hot water or coffee over the top (it will start to bubble as it hits the baking powder and soda) and pulse, scraping down the sides of the blender once or twice, until smooth.
  • Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour, or until cracked on top and springy to the touch. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool complete before glazing. TIP: To cool, I suggest placing the bundt pan in an ice bath for 10 minutes. This way, the cake won't break or crack when removing it from the pan.
  • To make the frosting, combine the sweetener with the melted butter and softened cream cheese. Add the almond milk and stir well to combine. Taste and adjust sweetness to your liking.
  • Drizzle over cooled cake.

    Love your family photos and stories! Such beautiful, lively boys. I see 11 superheroe figures. Are their birthday celebrations real birthdates? Or just a reason to have cake every month? I know what the answer would be for my boys! 🤣 Yum!

  • Kaya says:

    Oh my gosh! This looks so yummy and SO EASY! Today is my birthday and I’ve already made plans for a different cake, but our daughter’s birthday is NEXT weekend so maybe she’ll want a chocolate cake! I’m crossing my fingers that she does! Lol

  • Kim Gallegos says:

    Hi Maria! The cake looks fantastic and I can’t wait to try it but, I couldn’t help but zero in on the part that states that you are caffeine free for hormone health. Could you elaborate on this? Thanks so much for your help!

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Yes, caffeine can mess with hormones (cortisol, etc) and others. I have my clients, especially those trying to get pregnant, omit all coffee. 🙂

  • gjeanieg says:

    This looks perfect for our 32d Anniversary in a few weeks. But, we will call it Superhero Cake, in honor of Kai (and Micah). 😊

  • Kim says:

    Can it be made in a regular cake pan or loaf pan?

  • Looks so yummy, and a good desert for our 35th anniversary comin up. Almonds are high in oxlyates, is coconut flour okay to use? Do you have another alternative to almonds?

    • Leann says:

      I too want to try this too but almond flour gives me BAD acid reflux/indigestion and so I too am looking to not use almond flour but don’t know what to sub for it 🙁

  • How good and delicious this blender chocolate cake recipe is. I ended up making one following your step by step and…auuuu….I was impressed with the result.
