Vanilla cake is a staple in every household. Everyone needs a go-to vanilla cake recipe that they can throw together in a jiffy. Well, that’s what I’ve got for you folks! This vanilla cake recipe is the epitome of easy - made with almond flour, a little tapioca flour (this is what makes it airy), some eggs, a little vanilla (duh), and a couple other baking necessities. I honestly could eat the cake by itself, but the blueberry icing is a pretty darn good accomplice too.

Blueberry season is one of my favorites. Mainly because it comes with the start of summer, sunshine, and some really good-lookin’ fruity treats. I kind of felt like I was cheating on my girl chocolate when I decided to go with a fruity frosting, but I had to show these blueberries some love.

Now, I experimented with some vegan butter for this icing recipe and I have to say, it exceeded my expectations. I used a brand called Miyoko’s which you can find at many grocery stores like Sprouts, Publix, Whole Foods, and even Target. The ingredients are awesome too with coconut oil, cashews, and coconut oil. However, if you aren’t in mood for vegan butter, I highly recommend some creamy grass-fed butter which will do just fine in the recipe 😋

Don’t feel me on the fruity icing? Here’s a super simple chocolate frosting you’re going to LOVE! Want something more festive? I’m all about this Peppermint Mocha Cream Cheese Frosting.
