Sister Beans and Bean cake recipe

~BEANS! & a fabulous recipe~

Sister Beans 17 variety bulk beans are in stock. They are $4.80/lb and may be the best beans you have ever tasted (they are my favorite!) Hand threshed and organically grown–these beans were raised with care in nearby Plymouth, WI.

Here is a gluten free chocolate cake that will make you see beans in a whole new way! It is a moist and dense cake that is packed full of protein and fiber and can be served for dessert, or cut back on the sweetener and serve it for breakfast. This guilt free dessert is sure to become a favorite among all who try it!

Chocolate Bean Cake

-1 1/2 cups cooked beans (any color)
-5 large eggs
-1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
-1/2 tsp sea salt
-6 tbsp unsalted organic butter or coconut oil (room temp)
-3/4 c sweetener (experiment with this one–honey, cane sugar, etc)
-6 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
-1 tsp baking powder
-1/2 tsp baking soda

*Instructions*

-preheat oven to 350º
-grease a 9″ cake pan OR make cupcakes (grease pan also)
-puree beans in blender/food processor with eggs, vanilla, and salt. -Add the rest of the ingredients and puree until smooth.
-Pour the batter in greased pan or cupcake tins, tap pan on the counter to remove air bubbles,
-Bake for 40-45 minutes until cake is firm on top or tooth pick comes out clean. Wait until it is completely cool to serve or frost (goes great with buttercream frosting) store in the refrigerator for optimum taste.

ENJOY!
