Chocolate Cream Cheese Cake

A family recipe over 100 years old that has been passed down from generation to generation - the chocolate cream cheese cake or more classically known as "The Aunt Ruby Cake". Traditionally made in a bundt pan with oil, eggs, sugar, and buttermilk.

It has taken me years to finally get everything perfect, but I have completed that task this year. My family recipe is now whole food plant-based SOS-free and tastes just as good as the original recipe.

One of my favorite recipes I have ever created for you guys and something I am very honored introducing to your family.

Perfect for any special occasion -- Valentine's Day (hint hint!)

Chocolate Cream Cheese Cake 
By: The Jaroudi Family 


Cake Batter 
1 flax egg (1 tbsp flax meal mixed with 3 tbsp water) 
3⁄4 cup oat flour
3⁄4 cup whole wheat flour (or buckwheat flour for gluten-free)
1 tsp baking soda 
1 tsp baking powder
1⁄2 cup applesauce
1 cup hot coffee (or any coffee replacement like dandy blend/tea)
1⁄2 cup nondairy milk mixed with 1⁄2 tsp apple cider vinegar (“buttermilk”)
1⁄2 tsp vanilla extract
1⁄2 tsp white miso paste
1⁄4 cup cocoa powder
1⁄2 cup date paste (or date sugar)
Cream Cheese Filling 
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup white beans (drained and rinsed) 
6 pitted dates
2 tsp vanilla extract
¾ cup nondairy milk (unflavored/unsweetened)
Dark chocolate chips (optional) 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a high-speed blender mix together the cream cheese filling except chocolate chips until smooth. Move the filling to a bowl and fold in dark chocolate chips. 
Set aside. 

In a large bowl mix together all of the dry cake batter ingredients.

Add in the flax egg, hot coffee, applesauce, non-dairy buttermilk mixture, vanilla, and miso. 

Add half of the batter to a parchment-lined (or silicone) loaf pan. 

Layer on top the cream cheese filling.

Add the remaining batter over top of the cream cheese filling. 

Bake for 50-60 minutes.

Let the loaf pan cool completely before removing it.

To be gluten-free, does it need to be buckwheat flour, or will another flour be successful?

I LOVE you!!! This is the BEST WFPB cake recipe I’ve found. Shamefully...I ate the entire thing (by myself) in three days.
