Sweet and Simple Gluten-Free Cake (from black beans!)


Who knew?                                        

Black beans make a great gluten-free cake.
Am I the only one who thinks that's crazy?

Recently, I looked up a recipe for one and we made one for the first time.  (And by we, I mean she, our 13-year-old resident baker.)  And it was really good.

Then, someone suggested adding chocolate chips, and it was uh-mazing.  (Thanks, Jess!)  Because, don't chocolate chips make everything better?

It's been our go-to chocolate cake recipe lately, because it's
a. gluten-free
b. easy
c. flourless
d. and chocolate!

So I thought I'd share the link for the recipe, in case you want to try it.  The only thing we did differently was add a *large* bag of chocolate chips.  (Just add to pan before batter OR sprinkle on top of batter in pan.)

Find the recipe here...http://thehappytummy.wordpress.com/?s=black+bean+cake
(Makes one 8-inch cake, single layer, or one sheet cake.)

Very handy for an after-school snack or an after-dinner dessert...

or, just a picnic for one. ;)

What's your favorite easy gluten-free cake recipe?  We'd love to try it!  :)
