Dairy-Free Chocolate Cake with Citrus Glaze and Candied Orange Peels | figsandfeta.com

Every time I make a Bundt cake, I can’t help but think of the classic Bundt cake scene in My Big Fat Greek Wedding.  This Bundt is a delicious, and decadent Dairy-Free Chocolate Cake topped with citrus glaze and candied orange peels. Yes, this cake has a hole in it. But don’t worry… “I fix the hole”. ;)


“What is it?”

“It’s a Bundt.”

“A Bon?”

“A Bundt.”

“Bunk? Bonk, bonk?”

“BUNdT!”

Greek Chocolate Cookie Perfection

Cookies-3There are two things I have a hard time shaking: Cookies and Cake (Ok, three things: Ice Cream, too). If you were to mention the word ‘cake’ in a sentence I would obsess about it until I ate a piece.  For example: years ago my son and I needed to leave a kid’s birthday party early. Unfortunately, we left before cake was served. That night, after putting my then 2 year-old son to bed, I made a cake in order to scratch the itch. I then proceeded to eat two (large) pieces. The same is true with cookies. Talk of cookies  =  me making a batch of my favorite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies with Greek Chocolate without hesitation.
