Tip

This cake is wonderfully moist and works with most canned beans. If you use a round tin it will take a few minutes longer to bake.

You can also use oil instead of butter to make it dairy free - but butter is better!!

    This says 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract? Is that correct? Perhaps it is becuase of the chick peas but I imagine with red kidney beans it will only need 1 teaspoon? Thanks

    Submitted by Pippilongstompa on 21. December 2014 - 08:25.

    I chose this recipe as it was the easiest and used red kidney beans instead of chick peas - I have to admit I was a little hesitant but it was devoured by everyone! Lovely moist cake and stayed nice and fresh overnight - very easy and very tasty!

    Thanks for sharing. I reduced the sugar and rapadura to make it healther. I used cacao instead of cocoa and cooked it in a 20x20cm square cake tin. Children and friends loved it.

    Works just aswell with a 400g tin. May need 5 mins extra cooking next time to reduce the risk of sinking? Glad it tasted great!

  • Do you use one tin of beans

    Do you use one tin of beans or do you have to use 20g from another tin. My cake sunk in middle. Tastes great!

    Nice little tweak getting it all-in-one with no change of bowl. I still use red kidney beans though, as per Sarah's recipe.

  • You could use cocoa or cacao.

    Submitted by ggrima on 11. June 2014 - 06:47.

    You could use cocoa or cacao.  I would probably reduce the cacao to 50g depending how chocolate you like your cake. Delicious with both but more nutritious with cacao

    Made this yesterday and was so surprised at how great it tasted. I didnt have enough cocoa (about half) so I put in half coconut instead and still turned out delicious. I also used chickpeas and was worried about the taste but you couldn't even tell. My dinner guest were very surprised when I told them what it was made out of.
