Vanilla Bundt Cake (Grain-Free)

Vanilla Bundt Cake (Grain-Free, Paleo, Gluten-Free)

Five years! I can’t believe it! When I started this writing in 2008 while my husband was deployed, little did I know I would correspond with so many of you and be allowed to provide you with recipes, stories and advice for this long. I truly appreciate your support, suggestions, comments and conversation.

I’ve said this before, but it’s important you know that this site is for you. If I’m not helping people, I might as well pack my bags and go home. I want to provide a helpful resource for you and your family and I’m open anytime you want to send suggestions so I can make it a useful place.

A couple of years ago, I found Mighty Nest. It quickly became my favorite place to find healthy bakeware, cookware, kids lunch gear, etc. for our family. I’ve ordered many products from them over the past two years and have always been very pleased. So to celebrate Deliciously Organic’s five-year anniversary, I contacted Mighty Nest and asked them if we could give away a collection of some of my favorite cookware and bakeware.

Vanilla Bundt Cake (Grain-Free, Paleo, Gluten-Free)

This is a classic vanilla bundt cake. Not too sweet with a nice vanilla flavor. You can add different mix-ins like nuts, plumped raisins, chocolate chips, cranberries, etc. Or add a nice chocolate or honey glaze. You could also cut a slice and serve it with a dollop of whipped cream and seasonal fruit. It’s a nice staple cake recipe to add to your repertoire.


Vanilla Bundt Cake (Grain-Free)

Serving Size: Serves 10-12

Vanilla Bundt Cake (Grain-Free)


  • 6 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar or maple sugar
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, cooled
  • 3 tablespoons coconut milk or heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 4 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder (make sure it's grain-free)*
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Celtic sea salt


Preheat oven to 350ºF and adjust rack to middle position. Place eggs and coconut sugar in the bowl of a standing mixer. Mix on medium-high for 4-5 minutes, until fluffy and pale yellow. With mixer on medium, slowly add cooled butter, coconut milk, lemon juice and vanilla.

Whisk almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt in a large mixing bowl. Pour egg mixture over flour mixture and fold until incorporated. Pour batter into a well-oiled (or buttered) bundt pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes until golden brown - when a cake tester is inserted it should come out. Cool for 10 minutes, then invert onto a serving platter. Serve warm or at room temperature.

*To make homemade grain-free baking powder combine 1 part baking soda, 1 part arrowroot powder and 2 parts cream of tartar. Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

    Congratulations on FIVE years and thank you for your support and friendship through this blog. You are a blessing!

    This vanilla cake looks divine! I will be making this, soon. I would love to win all those kitchen goodies, but I would be content with only the cast iron pan :o).

  2. Donna

    Most stunning image…EVER…of a bundt cake…minimalist…elegant and captivating!

    The bundt pan would be an amazing prize if I were lucky enough to be a winner…I would want to honor this impressive beyond belief recipe! I agree, as well, that one can never have enough sturdy jelly-roll pans…they have multiple uses and hope to replace my cheaper versions!

  3. Janelle Golde

    I love this blog and am so happy I found it. We have recently started to really look at the kinds of food we were eating, your blog has helped so much! I would love to win some of this bakeware since I love to bake!!

  4. Charissa

    It was my birthday recently, and my husband offered to make me a vanilla cake. Then he promptly said, “Oh, wait, it has to be paleo, doesn’t it?” He googled recipes and decided he could handle making a cake, just not the frosting. He was concerned about the act of frosting the cake, too, as he was worried that he wouldn’t make it beautiful if it wasn’t the stuff from a plastic jar in the store. He will be soooo pleased when I tell him that I have a solution to his problem :-). And I might get my cake after all. Better late than never!

  5. Congrats on 5 years. I am so happy I found you !!!! So many of your recipes have become a staple at our house. Thank you for always responding to questions.

    The cast Iron Skillet. I could actually use a lot of the items. I am trying to slowly replace things as I can afford in the kitchen to be more safe and healthy.

    Congrats again.

  6. Mona Pridemore

    I love the cast iron skillet! I have one that my mother used and I love it. The glass bundt pan would be wonderful too!!! Ready to try the recipe this weekend – yum!! Thank you for your wonderful blog!!

  7. Candy

    I would LOVE the stainless steel products. We would love to get away from our non-stick baking pans, etc., but it’s so expensive to replace everything all at once. So we’ve made due at this point. It would be wonderful to get the baking pans especially, but I’d love any of it!

  8. Sheryl Branyon

    Happy Anniversary!! Thank you for the generous giveaway. The glass bundt pan is gorgeous and a must have. I am slowly but surely replacing everything in my kitchen so the stainless steel bakeware would be awesome too. :)

  9. Kathleen

    My grandma always used the Pyrex glass measuring cups but I guess it never dawned on me to register for some when I got married so I’ve never owned any myself. Those would probably be at the top of my list… along with a cast iron skillet (drool!).

  10. EEZ

    Hey! This recipe looks fantastic and I’d surely love to trade up from my “nonstick” N0rdicware bundt pan to this glass one. I previously didn’t know glass ones existed! My baking pans & muffin tins are aluminum, and stainless would be a huge improvement. I bake a lot, and would use all of this wonderful green gear a ton. Thanks for the chance!

  11. Shari W

    Happy Anniversary Carrie! What a fabulous giveaway! :-) I love anything glass, but currently I’d love the stainless steel measuring spoons. I’m in dire need of some new ones….mine keep going missing? Hmm, teenager in the house? Keep up the amazing work!

  12. Karyn

    The cake looks great. I just had a group of my friends over this week and though most things were gluten free…they weren’t especially healthy. This will go on my list for next year. I’m glad to know about the healthy nest also…thanks

  13. Jennie

    Have wanted the glass bundt pan ever since I saw you post about it not long ago! REALLY hope to win it to make these wonderful bundt cakes!! Thanks for offering this contest and for all your wonderful recipes :)

  14. Tracy Stone

    The cast iron skillet is what I would like to have first. I’ve ordered a few things from there and will get more, slowly. Would love this giveaway! Awesome set! Thanks! Glad you’re still going strong!

  15. Laura

    Oh, wow, everything would be wonderful! However, I have never seen a glass bundt pan and have desperately been searching for something to replace the non-stick one that I have and don’t like due to the coating.

  16. Cathy B.

    There are so many items I would enjoy, but I think my first choice would be the stainless jellyroll pan. Oh, or maybe the glass bundt pan so I can try your yummy-looking vanilla bundt cake! Happy blogiversary and thanks for the giveaway!

  17. Manda G.

    You are doing a great job on your blog. I love all of your recipes and advice! I know I can always count on you for great food and useful information!! This is a great giveaway with many tools I could use in my kitchen.

  18. Gianna

    They all look wonderful, but I would really love to try the cast iron pan. A few months back when you did the Unprocessed Kitchen series, I opted for a stainless steel to replace my non-stick because I felt unsure of how to use the cast iron… But I would surely love to try it out!

  19. Stephanie KL

    To continue my transition to stainless steel, I’d select the stainless steel muffin tin. Muffins are a big deal at our house and knowing that no toxic chemicals are leaching into our food would give us peace of mind.

  20. Sue

    This recipe looks fabulous! I cannot wait to try it. The bakeware looks amazing and is the next on my list of things to change as my family’s adventure continues to eat real food and live cleanser and healthier.

  21. Karen

    Congratulations on your 5 year anniversary! Thank you for all you share. Love this resource for kitchen tools! Thanks! In the market for a 12″ cast iron skillet and love the stainless baking pans. (I wrote earlier but it didn’t look like it went through so I apologize if this is a duplicate entry!)

  22. Ronda

    The vanilla cake looks yummy – I’ve never seen a glass bundt cake pan before! My mom (she’s passed away now) used to maker lots of cakes in that pan and I have her recipes. I would LOVE to own one of the glass ones and retire my old-fashioned gold Teflon pan.

  23. Andrea

    That cake looks fabulous! I disposed of a scratched-up non-stick bundt pan last year, part of my quest to get rid of all the dangerous cookware in the house. I haven’t replaced it yet, this would be perfect! Thanks for the chance.

  24. Cynthia

    I have just begun the journey of organic baking and so far your recipes have been spot on and delicious. Mighty nest is one of my favorite places, they are a great place to shop for products that will last a life time. Got to try this cake.

  25. Sharon Nagel

    I would really love the cast iron skillet. It’s an item we don’t currently have in our kitchen. Congrats on five years! I so enjoy your site … my favorite recipe is still the chicken parmesan and zucchini noodles. :-)

  26. Gia

    I love these items! All of them! But the one I’d like to have most is the bundt pan. It’s one of the few items missing from my cooking collection and I feel as though I’m missing out on so many great recipes.

  27. Grace

    What an amazing giveaway! The bundt pan reminds me of my Great Grandma.
    I used to love going to her house, it was like stepping back in time. She had
    real silver silverware and beautiful old glass dishes. Priceless!

  28. Christina

    I’d love to have each and everyone one of them, but the glass bundt pan in particular. I can’t imagine how beautiful cakes would be in this pan before they are flipped out on a plate to devour. :)

  29. Shelley Crovetto

    The cookware would be lovely to win. I am slowly trying to change my kitchen over to glass and stainless steel everything :-)
    I’m going to make this bundt cake for an event I’m going to this weekend :-)

  30. jess

    I would love to have that glass bundt pan. It is the one thing I could never convince myself to buy because many had the nonstick coating. But now, I see myself making many gorgeous lemon cakes and this fall, pumpkin!

  31. Nicole

    I would like all of the above in my kitchen! I LOVE to bake, and I recently decided to follow a Vegan lifestyle, so my days are all about being in the kitchen cooking and baking to find out what works for me! Love it! 😀

  32. Whitney

    I absolutely love this website!! I have found so many good recipes here, and have enjoyed this new cooking lifestyle!! I would love some new bakeware to go along with my new cooking methods/style!!
