Tip

This is a variation on the original 'magic bean cake', I just wanted to reduce the calories and make it sugar free. One piece of cake works out to be approximately 120 calories and full of goodness. This cake is suitable for freezing. Hope you enjoy!

  • Great chocolate cake! I added

    Submitted by snskitchen on 8. August 2016 - 20:48.

    Great chocolate cake! I added 150g of butter at step one and an extra date instead of the goji berries.  Will reduce cacao next time as little bitter. I used butter beans.  I removed from oven and removed from pan and place on baking paper on tray with about 150g of dark choc bits on top and returned to off oven until bits soft enough to spreadmas icing. Maybe not as healthy after that...

    Please people, understand that dates, berries and maple syrup are all sugar! I find this lazy labelling of refined sugar free as sugar free really frustrating, as I need Fructose Friendly recipes with low sugar and this recipe is off the scale for being high in fructose. I end up having to read hundreds of 'sugar free' recipes to find 3 or 4 that actually are sugar free.

    There is no fat component in this recipe, which explains the comments about it being dry.  Has anyone experimented with using some of the oil or butter amount from the original recipe?

  • This did not work for me.

    Submitted by mummy-mum on 26. July 2014 - 19:27.

    This did not work for me. Considering this had a heap of eggs, this was the driest cake I have ever made, it ended up in the bin.

    ps. the maple syrup is not in your instructions.

    Thanks

    Submitted by Homegrown and under 100 on 25. January 2014 - 21:22.

    Considering the ingredients I was really happy with the flavour of this cake!  Maybe a little dry, but this could have been from the smaller eggs I had (12/ 600g) used. Cake was still enjoyable, but will probably eat it with sweet and creamy yoghurt tomorrow. Also I don't like goji berries so substituted them with dried blueberries. 

    It looked like chocolate mousse before baking. Thanks for the recipe and modifications. Will definitely make again.
