This swirly vegan bundt cake has a similar look to a classic marble cake, but BETTER. The chocolate sauce consists of melted coconut, some non-dairy milk, coconut blossom sugar, cocoa, and espresso powder. The espresso really gives this bundt cake a special touch. The cake is topped with melted chocolate, even more espresso, and chopped nuts. The glaze isn’t necessary, but it tastes amazing. So if you’re not in a rush, make the glaze! This vegan bundt cake would be a hit at any party or get together––it’s so beautiful and delicious!

  • 3 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax seeds plus 3 tablespoons water)
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup of neutral oil (e.g., rapeseed oil)
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of rice milk (alternatively, almond, oat or soy)
  • 2 1/4 cup of oat milk (alternatively, almond or soy)

For the Chocolate Sauce:

Preparation

  1. For the basic dough, combine the flour with coconut blossom sugar, vanillin, the ground nuts, baking powder, flax egg, and salt. Mix well.
  2. Gradually, add the oil and milks and combine until a uniform, creamy dough is formed (add more or less oil to make it the consistency you'd like). Fill the bundt form with the dough.
  3. For the chocolate sauce, melt the coconut in a bain marie. Add the remaining ingredients gradually and mix well. Remove the sauce from the water bath and let it cool briefly until it becomes slightly thicker. Stir occasionally.
  4. Fill the sauce also into the mold and spiral-coat with a fork (for classic marble cake optics).
  5. Bake the cake in a pre-heated oven at 347°F for about 1 hour and 10 minutes (the baking time may vary depending on your oven).
  6. Remove the bundt cake from the oven and let it cool completely in the mold (cover with a clean kitchen cloth so that it does not dry out).
  7. Take the cake out of the mold and glaze with the espresso glaze from melted dark chocolate or dark couverture, coconut, and espresso. Finally, beat the chopped nuts and let the glaze solidify.
