Mini Hazelnut Cakes

  • Serves: 6 people

Moist and delicious, these vegan, hazelnut and almond-scented bundtlettes use whole-wheat flour and substitute tofu for crème fraîche. You won't miss the butter or eggs! Maple sugar, a wonderful natural sweetener, makes a difference in flavor; if you just can't find it, substitute natural cane sugar, or a mix of cane and date or coconut sugar. One cake is a big serving; cut them in half if you prefer.

  1. Place rack in center of oven and preheat to 350°. Lightly coat a 6-cup mini-bundt pan (or large-cup muffin tin) with nonstick spray. Dust cups with flour and tap out excess.
  2. Scatter hazelnuts on a rimmed baking sheet and toast for 10-15 minutes, taking care not to burn. When cooled a bit, place nuts between two towels and rub until skins come off. Place nuts in a clean, dry food processor with 1 tablespoon maple sugar; pulse just until finely ground.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine ground hazelnuts, flours, egg replacer, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, beat together remaining maple sugar, tofu, almond extract, oil, and soy milk with a hand mixer on medium-high speed until well-combined. Using a rubber spatula, fold dry ingredients into tofu mixture.
  4. Divide batter among prepared mini bundt cups and tap pan firmly against the counter to settle batter. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes, until crust is crisp and golden and an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool slightly, loosen edges and centers, and invert cakes onto a cooling rack. Let cool. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired.
