Being a Canadian, maple is a big fall flavor on this side of the border. Dotted with dark chocolate chips, this is the quintessential counter cake.


  • 6 eggs, separated
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • 2½ tsp espresso coffee dissolved in 1 Tbsp hot water
  • 1¾ cups flour + 1 Tbsp, divided
  • 1 cup oil
  • ½ cup vanilla soy or almond milk
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ cup mini chocolate chips
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa
  • 3 Tbsp hot water
  • 3 Tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • pinch salt

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

In a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites. When soft peaks form, add in the sugar slowly and beat until stiff. Add egg yolks, maple syrup and extract, dissolved espresso, 134 cups flour, oil, milk, and baking powder, in the order that they appear, mixing between each addition.

Mix the chocolate chips with the remaining tablespoon of flour.

Spray a Bundt pan very well with cooking spray and pour in some of the batter. Sprinkle some of the chocolate chips, then alternate batter with chocolate chips until both are complete. (This method will prevent the chocolate chips from sinking to the bottom.)

Bake for 1 hour.

For the icing: Once cake has completely cooled, in a small bowl, mix together icing ingredients and pour over cake.

Note: For a nice added touch, garnish with chopped vanilla Viennese crunch.
