He makes all types of cakes and has cake pans of all shapes and sizes, including a fairy and a butterfly shaped cake pan. We discussed our many options for a gluten free cake, and he mentioned a cake I just coudn’t refuse:
A flourless chocolate cake made with kidney beans. Weird? Maybe. Delicious? Absolutely!
1 can organic kidney beans
1 cup organic sugar
5 organic cage free eggs or use egg replacer equivelent (I usually use EnerG brand, but there are many different options)
6 tablespoons dark chocolate powder
1 tablespoon strong coffee
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon vanilla
5 tablespoons organic butter
The process: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Put everything in a blender or food processor.. BLEND.
Pour mixture into a well greased cake pan.
Bake for 35-45 mins…
Mmmmmmm cake! Eat your cake and get your protein too. Woohoo.
We shared our delicious cake with our friends and family, with sliced strawberries on top, and had a great time. We didn’t tell them about the Kidney Beans until after they ate it. All loved it! My son kept asking for more!
Many thanks to Christian the Cake Man. He is back on the road again and I wish him the best. 🙂 Happy Baking!
