Vegan Mini Cinnamon Sugar Cream Cheese Bundt Cakes

Vegan Mini Cinnamon Sugar Cream Cheese Bundt Cakes

Vegan Mini Cinnamon Sugar Cream Cheese Bundt Cakes. Sweet, bursting with cinnamon, vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free. These are filled with a vegan cream cheese swirl and are delicious, moist and so easy to make.

You all know how much I love to bake. It's my main passion, when it comes to cooking and creating. So, when Amy of Fragrant Vanilla Cake asked me to review her latest cookbook, "Just Vegan Cakes", obviously I said YES.

The sound of so many of the desserts in her cookbook had me drooling. I ultimately decided to share this Vegan Cinnamon Sugar Cream Cheese Bundt Cake (with her permission of course) because I love cinnamon more than any other flavor. I mean, a cinnamon and cream cheese flavored cake with lots of cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top?? Obviously, I couldn't wait to make these. I also liked that this one was made with coconut sugar. Guys, it is sooo delicious! Cinnamon-y, sugary, moist and rich!

This cake has a delicious cream cheese swirled throughout the batter and it not only smells divine, it tastes it too. Look how gorgeous the swirls look. The only thing different I did with her recipe, was to use "lite" canned coconut milk for the cake, instead of full fat coconut milk. There is already a good amount of oil in the cake (which I normally do not use) and a lot of cashew butter, so I figured I could still get by with the lite coconut milk and it still be plenty rich, and it was definitely very rich still.

Her whole book is filled with over 75 vegan and gluten-free recipes with amazing cupcakes, mini cakes, fancy cakes, you name it. So many beautiful, creative cakes to choose from. She even has an entire chapter dedicated to chocolate cakes. Um, yes! Seriously, any type of cake you can imagine. Everything from Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake, Caramel Pecan Cupcakes, PB & J Swirl Cheesecake, Flourless Caramel Cake, Chocolate Hazelnut Cake. Drooling, yet?

This book is for people who love rich desserts and to impress a crowd, as the majority of them contain oil, coconut butter or coconut milk. So, if anybody thinks vegan desserts are made with just boring veggies and no flavor, this book will show them otherwise! She even has many raw desserts and several beautiful cakes with hidden veggies like zucchini and beets. Nobody would know though, because they are still very rich. She even has a chapter on Ice Cream Cakes.

So, if you are looking for an amazing cookbook on rich vegan cakes, then you gotta get Amy's "Just Vegan Cakes" book!

I hope you all enjoy this lovely recipe, courtesy of Amy and her book. Be sure to leave feedback below if you make it!

Mini Cinnamon Sugar Cream Cheese Bundt Cakes (Giveaway!)

Author Brandi Doming


Cream Cheese

  • 1/2 cup raw cashew butter
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk from the top of the can
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar

Cake Batter

  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free all purpose flour SEE NOTE regarding brands
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp coconut oil If you need oil-free, try subbing with liquid coconut butter or applesauce, although I have not tried those
  • 3 Tbsp aquafaba
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup full fat coconut milk I used light
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice


  • 2 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • NOTE: I tested these with 2 different all purpose gluten-free flour blends. Since gluten-free blends can react so vastly different I wanted to try more than one. I tested with the Bob's Red Mill GF 1 to 1 Baking Flour and also the King Arthur Multi Purpose gluten-free blend. They are both rice and starch flour blends, so pretty similar. I much preferred the King Arthur. It was softer and lighter and more of a cake texture, whereas the Bob's was very chewy. The main difference in the ingredients being that Bob's has gum in it, which would explain that texture difference. I don't like the result of gums, so while the King Arthur blend was more delicate, it was also lighter and a preferred texture for me personally. I cannot vouch for any other brands since I only tried those 2.


  1. Preheat oven to 375F, and oil a 4 hole mini bundt pan with coconut oil. Note: I could not find a 4 hole bundt pan anywhere, so I bought a 6 hole one and it was perfect for the amount of batter.
  2. To make the cream cheese, whisk together cheese ingredients until smooth and set aside.
  3. To make the batter, whisk together all dry ingredients in a large bowl, then whisk in all of the wet ingredients. Pour half the batter into the prepared pan. Drop some of the cream cheese mixture over that, then top with remaining batter, then the remaining cream cheese mixture. Swirl around with a knife, to create marbling.
  4. Place in the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Let cool in pans for about 15 minutes, then unmold.
  5. Mix together the cinnamon and sugar topping in a bowl. Then once cakes are unmolded, dust them with the cinnamon sugar mixture.

I haven't had those in ages!

  61. Another amazing, positively dreamy recipe I need to try! I'm so excited. I love baking all the sweets, but lately I've been crushing on cookies.
  62. If you slowly scroll down the first photo it feels like you move from the stars to earth. But earth is a delicious cheese cake, hahaha.Give it a try, you'll see what I mean :D
      Haha, thank you Howie, I will take that as a compliment! Lol!
  63. Haven't cooked cheesecake yet, but looking forward to it!
  64. I'd say I make cookies most often, but brownies are my favorite thing to eat! I love chocolate and the thick texture. Cakes are sorta eh for me. Although I had a gluten free death by chocolate cake from Vegan Treats recently that was TO DIE FOR!
  65. These are absolutely gorgeous! Do you think they could be made with regular all-purpose flour? Thanks! :)
      Hi Aimee! I haven't tried it yet, but I think that it would, let me know if you try it!

These sound incredible and your photos are just beautiful, Brandi! I'm 99.9% sure I would have gone straight for this recipe, too - the thought of cinnamon + cream cheese together is heaven. I've tried a few of her recipes a while back and they were big hits so I'll have to add her book to my list! xo
      Aww thank you so much my friend! You are too sweet! That backdrop I painted and I love how the color came through in the photos. Getting the shot was a pain in the you-know-what though, lol. I took many before getting one I liked. This cake was sooo good, hey, all that cinnamon, so of course it is! I think you would love this cake Mandy!
