We love the Holidays! And not just for all the family time and good cheer, but also because of the amazing food. This bundt cake checks off all the boxes...decadent (check), impressive (check), seasonal (check), makes the whole house smell like eggnog and nutmeg (check, check). On top of all that, it's plant-based & dairy-free! The original recipe calls for Earth's Own Almond-Nog, but this year you could substitute that for Canada's very first Oat Nog.
Why do we love Oat M*lk so much? It’s grown with 7x less water than almond or cow's milk. Plus Earth's Own all-Canadian and gluten-free oats are grown without glyphosate using nothing but sunshine & rainwater. Protecting the environment is one of the main missions at Earth's Own and they believe every little effort counts toward making a larger impact. All while using healthier ingredients, like sunflower oil instead of canola oil, because good fats are a good thing. And Earth's Own was voted “Canada’s Fave Oat M*lk”! In short: it may seem like a glass of creamy & delish Oat M*lk with 4g of protein and 2g of fibre, but it represents a stronger planet and a healthier future. They even wrote an entire plantifesto.
VANILLA OAT BUNDT CAKE WITH POMEGRANATES AND ALMOND NOG GLAZE
Delight your friends & family with this show-stopping holiday dessert!
Vanilla Yogurt Cake
- 1.5 cups cake flour
- 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/2 cup Earth’s Own Unsweetened Original Oat Milk
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup organic sugar
- 1 cup grapeseed or sunflower seed oil
- 2 cups vegan yogurt (we used almond cashew unsweetened yogurt)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Almond Nog Glaze
- 2-4 tablespoon Earth’s Own Almond Nog (or substitute with Oat Nog!)
- 1 cup organic icing sugar
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- pomegranate seeds, clementines, or other seasonal fruit
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the inside of your bundt pan with oil and lightly dust with flour. Tip pan upside down and knock out extra flour.
- In a bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cornstarch, and salt.
- In a larger bowl, mix the oil, sugar, yogurt, vanilla extract, apple cider vinegar, and oat milk until combined.
- Add the flour to the wet mixture in three batches, mixing thoroughly with a spatula after each addition. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl in between additions.
- Pour the batter evenly into the bundt pan and smooth the surface. Bake 35-45 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
- Cool bundt cake for 10 minutes and then flip onto a cooling rack. Ifcake does not come out easily, run a knife along the sides and then try again to flip onto a cooling rack. Leave to cool on a cooling rack for 1 hour or overnight. Cake should be completely cool before glazing.
- Combine 3 tablespoons of almond nog (or oat not) and icing sugar. Stir until no lumps remain. Add in more nog if needed. Pour over cooled cake. And grate fresh nutmeg on top.
- Serve cake with pomegranate seeds, clementine slices, or other seasonal fruit
