The perfect vegan gugelhupf

Now that was a challenge! Somehow I thought it would be pretty easy to bake a vegan bundt cake. I already have some Basic recipes that I use for Sponge cake use and that should go but all loose and flaky from the hand. No sooner said than done, I got started and was more than disappointed with my first attempts. But since I don’t get discouraged that easily, I kept at it and eventually the time came. Finally, a perfect Gugelhupf came out of the oven. But the joy remained only briefly! why? You will learn more about this further down in the text.

Maybe you have noticed that my dad is now my most important Product tester is. Actually, I rely 100% on his opinion and as soon as a message pops up on my phone with “Tastes really yummy” or “all gone!” I know it worked.

So what goes into our Gugelhupf? I use room warm Almond milk baking soda, apple cider vinegar, to give the Cake really nice to give buoyancy. Add spelt flour, baking powder, raw cane sugar, oil, applesauce, bourbon vanilla and a pinch of sea salt.

In the dark dough comes then cocoa, a little more plant milk and we are ready.

Here are my tips for a perfect baking experience:

  • Use a well coated Gugelhupf mold with 22cm diameter
  • The vegetable milk should be at room temperature so that it can react well with the baking soda and vinegar.
  • Do not stir too long! Otherwise you will stir the leavening power of the natron back out of the dough. Therefore, use food processor only until the dough is well combined and turn off dan If you stir by hand, use whisk and don’t be too fussy with small crumbs. They dissolve during the baking process.
  • Be sure to grease baking pan well and dust with flour or semolina. Especially with the Gugelhupf is essential, otherwise you run the risk that the cake half stuck in the mold (so it was with me)!!! This is really annoying, so best to work well in advance.
  • Ready baked cake be sure to cool long enough. Best left overnight or 2-3 hours in a cool place. Otherwise, the same misery as described above threatens and the Gugelhupf does not come out of the mold.

The only question now is what goes perfectly with our today’s Cake fits. Definitely a chocolate glaze with fine dark vegan chocolate. As a topping, I sprinkle a handful of raw cacao nibs on top. If that is not enough, you can serve a portion of coconut cream with it. On the picture you see another Golden milk which I have made fresh to it.

Let’s get started with this moist marble cake. I hope you enjoy baking and of course about a review at the bottom of this page. If you post a picture, use the hashtag #veganevibes.

  • ALTERNATIVE: Place all ingredients in order in a high-powered blender (e.g. Blendtec) and process with the dough program to a homogeneous dough.
  • The dough should be neither too solid nor too liquid and should be easy to pour into the baking pan. If too firm, add a little more almond milk, if too runny, add a little more flour.
  • Pour two-thirds of the batter into the bundt pan.
  • FOR THE CHOCOLATE DOUGH Pour cocoa powder and almond milk in to the remaining batter in the bowl and mix well once again.
