  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10-cup Bundt pan.
  2. Mix white sugar, flour, 3/4 cup cinnamon, and 3 tablespoons non-dairy butter together in a stand mixer until well blended. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. Mix 1 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons cinnamon, cocoa powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt together in a stand mixer until well blended. Transfer to a separate bowl.
  4. Measure 1 1/2 cups Lactaid(R) milk in a 2-cup measuring cup. Stir in lemon juice and cream of tartar.
  5. Mix cottage cheese, 1 1/2 cups white sugar, and 1/3 cup brown sugar together in a stand mixer. Whip until mixture is smooth and creamy. Add non-dairy butter or margarine and whip until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, beating well before adding the next one. Mix in vanilla and maple extracts and salt. Mix in 2 cups flour.
  6. Pour milk mixture into the mixer; mix well. Add remaining 2 cups flour and baking powder; blend well.
  7. Pour 1/3 of batter in prepared Bundt pan. Top with 1/2 of the swirl mixture.
