Dessert Gluten-free Vegan

CHOCOLATE & ORANGE GLAZED BUNDT CAKE | Glutenfree * Dairyfree * Eggfree

Gluten free vegan chocolate orange glazed cake


  • 200 gr / 7 oz brown rice flour
  • 80 gr / 3 oz (potato) starch
  • 160 gr / 5.6 oz brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp answeetend cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar + 1 tsp baking soda (or sub both with baking powder)
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 tbsp ground flaxseed + 10 tbsp water (= egg replacer)
  • 30 gr / 1 oz seed or coconut oil
  • 120 gr / 4 oz non dairy milk
  • 120 gr / 4 oz filtered orange juice
  • 150 gr / 5.3 oz dark chocolate (the one I use is orange flavored)
  • candied orange

Ready in: 1 hour

So here we are with the last of my three ideas for the holidays menu and I won’t hide it: as much as I love the two savory dishes I previously posted (creamy baked pasta and veggie casserole), I couldn’t wait to get to the dessert. 
As it happens pretty much with every meal, that is. Sometime I would have dessert even after breakfast. Yes I’m that bad.
And the fact I love cakes and chocolate and citrus fruits and this one has them all in each bite, might have a lot to do with my  enthusiasm for this recipe too.
But let’s get to chocolaty business, my dear:

  • pre-heat the oven 180 C° / 355°F
  • mix the flaxseeds and water and let it rest for a few minutes
  • mix the flour, starch, sugar, cream of tartar and baking soda
  • now divide the mix into two halves
  • to one part add the cocoa, half the seed/coconut oil, the dairyfree milk and half the flax-egg
  • to the other part of dry ingredients add the other half of seed/coconut oil and flax-egg, and the orange juice
  • whisk thouroughly the two batters keeping them separate
  • grease the bundt cake pan with some seed/coconut oil
  • now in the pan alternate a couple of tbsp of chocolate batter to a couple tbsp of orange batter, one next to the other, till you finish both batters.
  • with the back of the spoon make light swirling movements through the two batters, not over mixing them, but creating white/brown lines, so you get a marble-effect (see picture below)
  • now into the oven for 30 minutes more or less
  • in the mean time melt the chocolate bars in a small pot, adding a few tbsp of veg milk, until you get the creaminess you want. I opted for a thicker chocolate spread
  • once the cake is baked, let it cool down a bit and then decorate with the melted chocolate
  • add some candied orange on top (cubes in my case) 

And … keep strong. Do not eat the whole cake right away.  I repeat: do not eat the whole cake right away.
Which is why last time I baked it, I brought half of it to my friends (and they loved it, woot woot!).

In the next few days I’ll be sharing an easy, cheap and tasty idea for a gluten and dairy-free gift too, so if you want to stay in touch (oh please do) don’t forget to subscribe to my  Instagram, Twitter and Facebook 😉
