Marble Bundt Cake
Growing up, I'd visit my Aunt's farm in Cherryville and she was one of those people who's food was just INCREDIBLE. She'd have proper meals, always had fresh baked muffins on hand, homemade bread, and fluffy scrambled eggs for breakfast that had been collected straight from the chicken coop that morning. Yea, it was amazing...
I was lucky enough to find this recipe from her for this marble bundt cake. It has the best of both worlds (chocolate and vanilla) and it's so damn pretty with the swirls. I modified the recipe a little bit to make it dairy-free and HOLYYY it's so damn good. I mean, real butter is still pretty amazing but if you're looking for a dairy free alternative, this is 99.9% just as good.
Dairy-free butter - As always, I used Melt Organic Dairy Free butter. It has worked in every recipe I've subbed butter for, and their baking sticks are so convenient (and cute) ! Cocoa Powder - I love using Camino Fair Trade Cocoa Powder. Not only are they fair-trade certified, they have made some serious environmental commitments as well. They use only organic ingredients, helping to protect and preserve the land, their packaging uses biodegradable and compostable wrappers, and they print with vegetable based ink! So much love for this brand. Dairy-free milk - Have you hopped on the Califia Farms train yet? If not, you should. Their plant-based products are creamy, smooth, and just straight up incredible. Works great in baking, too! I used their Almond Milk for this recipe. Flour - My go to, Rogers Grains Unbleached Flour. I always feel good supporting them vs Robin Hood since it's made in B.C.! Close to home, for me.
