Black Bean Chocolate Cake

Yup. That’s right. It’s a thing. There are beans in this delectably moist, rich chocolate cake. Not only are there beans, but there is no flour. Many gluten free folk have probably heard of this phenomena, but I had not. I’m converted. At least for this cake.

I used this recipe from The Food Faffer. The only change I made was that I used plain, granulated sugar. Also, I doubled the recipe so that I could make a two layer cake.

Bake. Cool. Frost. Layer. Almonds.

And done. Happy birthday to all the wonderful people in my world that are celebrating this week!
