Mini Bundt Cakes with Maple-Cinnamon Glaze

Total time: 
Serves: 6 cakes
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a mini Bundt pan with avocado oil and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the cassava flour, maple sugar, coconut flour, arrowroot, baking soda, and sea salt and stir to combine. Set aside.
  3. Put the avocado oil, lemon juice, and vanilla into a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add the dry mixture, give it a little stir, and then pour in the cold water, using a spatula to stir only until the mixture is combined. Fold in the dried fruit or nuts, if using. Pour the batter into each mini Bundt wells and bake for 30 minutes, or until lightly browned (cakes will not rise or expand much; this is normal for baking with cassava flour).
  4. Allow the cakes to cool for 20 minutes in the pan before carefully flipping them over and lifting off the Bundt pan. Let the cakes finish cooling on a wire rack for another 40 minutes. Transfer them to the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to chill so the glaze will set when poured on top.
  5. When you are ready to dress the cakes, combine the coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, and spices in a bowl, using a whisk to combine. The mixture should be thick but still pourable—if not, heat it for a few seconds in the microwave or in a warm water bath. Pour or spoon the glaze along the top of the cakes, allowing it to drip down the sides. Before it sets, arrange dried fruit on the tops, if using, and sprinkling with salt and cinnamon.
  6. Serve chilled.
MEASURING: I don’t give cup equivalents for this recipe because the portions are quite fussy, and it only comes together using weights. If you don’t have a gram/ounce scale, pick one up online or at your favorite cookery store, as it will make baking with alternative flours much more successful!

STORAGE: Due to the addition of avocado oil, these cakes keep incredibly well and taste just as good the next day, making them a great option to make ahead. While the glazed cakes can tolerate being exposed to typical room temperatures for a few hours, I recommend keeping them in the refrigerator until ready to serve. If you happen to have leftovers, individual slices wrapped in plastic will keep well in the refrigerator or the freezer.
