Substitute a hand mixer for a stand mixer's paddle or flat attachment?

Hi All,
I'm baking my brother a cake for thanksgiving -- its his birthday and he LOVES chocolate. I was going to make the cook's illustrated chocolate sour cream bundt cake, but it calls for the flat beater and I don't own a stand mixer (or the beater for that matter). I have a hand mixer (and an emersion blender, which is even MORE of a stretch)... anyone know if I can run the recipes with this mixer?

I've tried to find other chocolate bundts that dont call for the stand mixer but am out of luck so far.
