Super quick cake recipe that is easy to make and has healthy ingredients: Easy Cake Recipe from Scratch
This is one of my “go-to” cake recipes that is simple to make and that turns out great every time. I like baking healthy desserts and treats that have common ingredients but that turn out special.
HOMEMADE EVERYDAY CAKE RECIPE:
I often think of this recipe as an Everyday Cake as one of those cakes that is perfect to have around all the time.
It is great with frosting, great without frosting, great with a sprinkling of powdered sugar or great simply plain.
I use Einkorn Flour when I make this cake for the extra nutrition and flavor. I also use organic ingredients as I feel they offer superior nutrition.
This cake recipe is better the next day so it is perfect to make ahead plus, slice and place extras in the freezer to have on hand for coffee time or company.
I always bake this cake in a heavy cast bundt cake pan!!! This style of bundt pan is heavier and bakes very evenly. I have had mine for 35+ years. So, it is very worthwhile investment!
Plus, if you want to decorate…..try these all natural sprinkles…..they have natural food dye and seem a bit healthier!
I love that it:
♦is made with real food ingredients
♦turns out great ever time
♦and……that it tastes wonderful
This particular cake is not spicy, it is not chocolate, it is not overly sweet and is not flavored in any way. It is simply a plain cake with a marvelous wholesome flavor. This is the greatest recipe to file under that perfect easy cake recipe from scratch!
What a great combination to have superior nutrition and wonderful flavor in a simple from scratch recipe. I really think this recipe is my new from scratch easy pound cake recipe as it is similar to pound cake in texture but not in calories or fat.
Plus, this recipe offer superior nutrition with carefully chosen ingredients.
I usually make this recipe from scratch without any additional flavorings or extracts such as vanilla or almond. But, I think those would be perfectly fine to add…..
Easy Everyday Cake from Scratch
This is the perfect easy, healthy and delicious cake! It is one of those recipes that is perfect to have around all the time. It is great with frosting, great without frosting, great with a sprinkling of powdered sugar or great simply plain!
- 4 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 1/2 Cup Applesauce
- 1/2 Cup Oil I use Avocado Oil
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Xyitol
- 1/4 Cup Cane Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 2 1/2 Cups Einkorn Flour (or any Wheat Flour)
- 2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt I use Pink Himalayan Salt
- 1/2 Cup Yogurt
- 1/2 Cup Milk
- Plus, Secret Step........
This is the part I love ♥ Just place all ingredients into your large mixing bowl at once. No special creaming or sifting or adding a little here and there.....Just place all ingredients in at once!
Combine all ingredients and then either beat on medium high in your electric mixer for 4 minutes ~or~ if mixing by hand, beat 400 strokes!
Spray or butter a Bundt Pan. Pour your Cake Batter into your Bundt Pan and let it rest for 10 minutes. This steps is especially important if using Einkorn Flour as it helps the flour absorb the liquid in the batter. I have had great success doing this.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes. Check with a toothpick or knife at 45 minutes to see if the toothpick or knife come out clean. If so, remove cake from oven and place on trivet or hot pad to cool. If not, then set timer for 5 more minutes. Test again and then remove to cool.
Allow to cool for approximately 10 to 15 minutes. After cooling, begin to loosen all the edges of the cake from the Bundt Pan. Be very careful to make sure they are all loose. Slip of soft spatula down between the cake and outside of pan to loosen. Once completely loose from pan, place your cake plate on the top of the pan and then flip over. Remove Bundt Pan.
I like to wash the Bundt Pan immediately and then dry it. Place the pan back over the cake as it cools. This step helps insure the cake stays moist. It is much easier to frost if it is moist. If the cake dries out on the outside, the crumbs make it more difficult to frost.
I love using all organic ingredients in all my cooking and baking as I feel they offer superior nutrition. Fresh eggs, organic yogurt and milk just seem right to me! ♥
Delicious Creamy Butter Frosting
This is a 3 ingredient quick creamy frosting that is perfect on the Easy Everyday Cake or any cake you would like to frost!

Melt butter in a saucepan. Add sifted powdered sugar. Combine until crumbly. Add 1 Tablespoon of milk. Mix. Add a teaspoon at a time of milk until the frosting in a glossy, creamy spreadable consistency.
Carefully frost the cake by putting a thin layer of frosting on first to calm the crumbs down! Then frost with remaining frosting! Sprinkle with decorations if desired. Eat and Enjoy!
