Within the past year I became enamored with 1 bowl sheet cakes! They are just so quick and easy, you’ll never want to do a layered cake again lol. To date, we’ve done probably 10 or more different varieties and one of my personal favorites will forever be the pumpkin!
It’s buttery soft and packs tons of pumpkin flavor! When thinking of the perfect fall treat, I just knew.. we had to do cake balls! I honestly love this concept as it’s such a saving grace for cake that just didn’t come out right. No matter what the cake flavor, you can salvage it by just combing it with icing and coating it in chocolate.
Since I cook full time, I hate wasting food. So when I tested a few Pumpkin Roll recipes and one happened to brea lol, I knew the plan to salvage this perfectly good cake.. vegan White Chocolate Pumpkin Cake Balls!
What’s great about this recipe? Everything! It’s quick easy, packs a rich pumpkin, flavor, is buttery soft, requires just 1 pan, you can find the white chocolate on Amazon, you can use ready made icing, its perfect for the season, perfect for entertaining, pairs well with the cream cheese icing, and is my favorite no fuss recipe!
If you love all things pumpkin, you have to try these new vegan White Chocolate Pumpkin Cake Balls!
Make 3 depressions in the dry ingredients – two small and one large. Pour the vinegar and vanilla extract separately in the two smaller depressions, and the oil in the large one. This step is imperative as your cake will be more dense and won’t rise.
In a liquid measuring cup combine the pumpkin puree and water. whisk until smooth. You should have 1 cup of liquid.
Pour the liquid mixture over the entire thing and mix until smooth. Batter will be on the thicker side.
Bake on the middle rack of the oven at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes or until browned on the edges and when you push in it bounces back. Allow to fully cool.
Throw in a food processor until processed into fine crumbs. Combine with 3/4 cup of ready made icing. Form balls with the mixture and place in the freezer to chill while you melt the chocolate.
Melt the vegan white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl with the coconut oil for 1 minute. Stop to stir the chips every 15 seconds to prevent burning.
dip the chilled balls in the chocolate, coating them with a spoon, allow the excess to drip off and then place on parchment paper to set. Top with sprinkles if desired while the chocolate is still wet. If the chocolate becomes firm in the bowl, simply pop back in the microwave.
