Description

Ingredients

  • 2 cups GF baking flour
  • 1/2 tsp cocao powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp vinegar (apple cider vinegar works as well)
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 ripe banana
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven at 350ยบ
  2. Curdle the milk by combining the unsweetened almond milk and 1 tbsp vinegar, set aside.
  3. Mix all the the dry ingredients into a large bowl and set aside
  4. With the paddle attachment on, add in the syrup, applesauce, vanilla, and curdled milk to the banana. Mix well for about 1 minute
  5. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix until well combined (about halfway through, scrape down the sides to make sure you get all of the mixture)
  6. While the mixer is still on, add in the boiling water. This will make the batter runny and that's okay - that's what we want.
  7. Transfer to your nonstick bundt pan and bake for 50-55 minutes
  8. Let cake cool for about half hr before transferring to a cooling rack and another half hr before frosting your cake.
  9. For the ganache frosting:Heat up 2/3 cup of coconut milk and whisk in 1 1/2 cups of vegan chocolate chips - whisk until smooth.
  10. How to frost your cake:Vegan Chocolate Bundt Cake with Chocolate GanacheAgain, it's a personal preference. I chose to cover the entire cake with the ganache, but you can take a spoon and just lightly drizzle the ganache over.
