This is my most requested dish to bring to parties & yoga night because it is actually a pretty healthy cake. Why? Because of the absurd amount of eggs and beans.... yes beans. I found the original recipe on a Facebook post but it was much drier and had way too much white sugar. By increasing the quantity of eggs, adding a banana, reducing the sugar by a cup and using brown sugar, adding spices and more beans the final recipe has evolved to a very dense and rich cake.
2 Cans of Cannellini Beans (I've tried Garbanzo and Navy Beans they make a drier cake)
1/2 Cup of Brown Sugar
1 Ripe Banana
1 TBSP of Oatmeal Cookie Spice
1 Tsp of Baking Powder
1 Bag of Dark Chocolate Chips, melted
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Grease a spring form pan.
In a blender or Vitamix add the eggs and beans, blend to a very smooth texture. Add the banana, spice, baking powder, blend again until smooth. Then add the melted chocolate and blend until it is incorporated. Pour into the greased spring form pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
