Mr Bean's Chocolate Cake
Got this from a friend and tried it out today, it was great! Kids would not even know it was made with no flour and stacked full of beans.....I still think it's quite funny really.....I mean i've done the good old beetroot cake and could understand that, but this one, with no flour and a whole can of beans.....CLASSIC! Will be making it again for sure.
400g/420g kidney beans, canned drained 1 tablespoon water 1
tablespoon vanilla extract 70 g cocoa powder 1 teaspoon GF
baking powder 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 125
g Butter 5 eggs 180 g sugar
Puree beans with the water, 1 egg and
vanilla on Speed 5 for 20 seconds (scrape and redo a bit longer if necessary) You want a nice smooth consistency. SET ASIDE
Add the butter and sugar, Speed 4 for 30 seconds
Add the remaining eggs, Speed 4 for 20 seconds
Add bean mixture, Speed 5 for 10 seconds
Add the cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
and mix a bit by hand to help incorporate anything stuck on the sides then - Speed 4 for 10 seconds.
Pour batter into greased ring tin pan and bake 180 degree oven
for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
If you like cover with icing......I will be packing it for school lunches so don't ever do icing....but if you're serving at home, icing would go beautifully!
