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.


Marvelous Maple Chocolate Cake

  • 6 eggs, separated

  • 1 and 1/2 cups sugar

  • 1/4 cup Gefen Maple Syrup

  • 1 teaspoon maple extract

  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons espresso coffee dissolved in 1 tablespoon hot water

  • 1 and 3/4 cups Glicks Flour plus 1 tablespoon, divided


  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar

  • 2 tablespoons Gefen Cocoa

  • 3 tablespoons hot water

  • 3 tablespoons oil

  • 1 teaspoon maple extract

  • pinch salt


Prepare the Marvelous Maple Chocolate Cake


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).


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, one and 3/4 cups flour, oil, milk, and baking powder, 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 one hour.

Prepare the Icing


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


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