When selecting the categories for the blog posts I write, sometimes I select both breakfast and dessert. And then I wait for the paleo police to knock on the door. Well I say bring it! I will stand by my decision to eat Paleo Triple Berry Bundt Cake for breakfast. And I’m still drinking coffee so picking a fight isn’t the wisest.
Paleo Triple Berry Bundt Cake
I know, I KNOW. Breakfast should be steak or whatever, and for the most part, I agree; we shouldn’t be eating sugary carb-bombs for breakfast. We should be eating real food.
For the most part, eggs and bacon or leftover dinner sounds pretty decent for breakfast. But sometimes, I want something more… cakey. Like this. I also like it for snacks.
Sure, it’s still cake, but it’s cake made with almond flour and not a lot of sugar and also has eggs! And berries! Which I think we can all agree are both solidly in the breakfast category. Plus, this is one pretty cake and starting your day with beautiful things is good for your health*
*Not peer reviewed, or even a fact, but I’m personally sure of it.
I originally created this recipe when writing the menu for a paleo picnic cooking class- so naturally this is an excellent choice to pack on a picnic, too.
Whatever time of day you choose to enjoy this cake, I hope you love it. And if you’re a cake-for breakfast fan like me, check out my Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins and Earl Grey Peach Cake.

Just hopping on to say I made this cake last night with what I could find: blueberries, strawberries and cherries (I pitted them). It’s a little too late in the season here in NY to get decent raspberries or blackberries. Anyhow it turned out great. I think I will make a paleo lemon glaze to go on top instead of powdered sugar.
One interesting note: I made it in a glass bundt pan. I had bought this pan awhile back, being sort of suspicious of aluminum pans, and all the bundt pans seem to be at least partly aluminum. Anyway, the glass pan worked great. It’s really lightweight (I wonder how they do that?). It did take a bit longer to cook — about 45 mins — but also, I have a slow oven, so that might’ve been part of it.
Anyway, thanks for terrific – and easy – recipe. I’m sure I’ll make it again.
I’m so glad you liked it! I bet cherries in it were amazing. I wonder if the glass pan is what caused it to take longer to bake? I think that can often be the case. Paleo flours can vary batch to batch too, some almond flour is dryer than others. That could do it too. At any rate, I’m glad you enjoyed it!
So want to try this What can I sub for butter/ ghee? Get alergic reaction every time. Yes, Even ghee.
Hi Cindy! For a dairy-free version you could use palm shortening!
Hi! Thank you for sharing this recipe! I’ve been wanting to try to add coconut and arrowroot flour to my standard almond flour cake recipe!
If I reduce the eggs to 4, and use 2 Cups Almond flour, would that work?
My current almond flour bundt cake recipe calls for 4 cups almond flour and 4 eggs, so wasn’t sure. Thanks!
Hi Aria! I really have no idea, without trying it. All the flours act differently, so there’s no way of knowing until you try. Coconut flour is way more absorbent than almond so keep that in mind, you need less of it per egg than you do almond flour.
I made this in a glass bundt pan and it did take a little longer to cook. This cake is beyond delicious and I will be sharing this recipe with my Paleo friends.
I made this last year at least 3 times! I am so excited its berry season again and I get to make it tonight! I personally think it’s a perfect dessert with a little greek yogurt.
