So, let’s be honest y’all…how many of you are itching to welcome in Fall season? And don’t you lie to me because I know you’ve got your canned pumpkin, chai spices, and maple pecan candles just lurking around, ha! Okay, maybe I’m just speaking for myself hehe. But like, seriously, where in the world has this year gone?! I cannot believe we’re about to enter the last quarter of the year. What a year 2020 has been to us all huh.

While I’m absolutely excited to celebrate all that is Fall, I’m holding onto the last bits of Summer. If you know me personally, you know that I full on enjoy perusing farmers markets, making all the summery-type cuisines, and ample cocktails to have on deck. Alternatively, I love me some summer baking. Listen, give me some seasonal fruit crisps and home-baked pies/treats. That’s what inspired this blueberry almond cake.

Thanks, Bob’s Red Mill, for sponsoring this post! 💜

Never has a cake been so easy to make, super delicious, and perfect for any occasion/celebration! I make a lot of cakes often that tend to be on the more elaborate side of things that not everyone wants to make. I’m just being honest, I get it. Sometimes you want to whip up a sweet creation but not have to break several sweats with intimidation to do so. I got you. This easy blueberry almond cake is soooo dreamy!

Facts About This Blueberry Almond Cake Recipe

  1. It’s baked in an 8×8 square cake pan: I love this so much because it yields evenly clean cake slices. Additionally, it’s a perfect size for when you want cake but don’t want to have such a large quantity.
  2. This recipe contains almond flour: Thanks to Bob’s Red Mill’s super-fine almond flour, this cake is super moist. Almond flour has a nice taste and ensures great moisture and amps up the almond flavor!
  3. I developed the most decadent and wonderful blueberry cream cheese frosting that seals the deal on this cake! Ugh, this frosting is so wildly delicious y’all. It’s all-natural and doesn’t use any food coloring- thanks to the magic of freeze dried blueberries! Those blueberries get blended into powder form and gives the frosting that gorgeous color. I typically buy my freeze dried blueberries from Trader Joe’s or Target but most other grocery stores should carry them as well. Honestly, that frosting alone is the best!

Can I Use A Round Cake Pan?

Sure thing! I prefer using a square cake pan because I love how easily it can be served up into nine cute ‘lil slices. It’s the perfect mini sheet cake! However, feel free to use a round 8-inch cake pan if you’d like.

How Long Will The Cake Keep?

If this cake is wrapped in plastic wrap and stored in a container, it will keep for up to 2 days in the refrigerator for best results. Any longer than that will cause the cake to lose its freshness and flavor.

I could go on and on about this blueberry almond cake but I’ll spare ya! In a nutshell, this cake is super simple, studded with blueberries, and packed with tons of blueberry/almond flavor throughout each bite. It’s an ode to ending summer on a high note via cake form. Enjoy, can’t wait to see you make this one!
