Magic Bean Cake

I shared this baby on Instagram and got asked to share so of course here I am never one to under deliver and all that...  

I made mine in the Thermomix so was easy and quick but the food processor would do fine it may just not be as 'pulverised' :)


420 g kidney beans, canned, drained
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
70 g unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
125 g butter
5 eggs
180 g sugar


Puree the beans, water, 1 egg and vanilla until smooth then set aside.
Beat the butter and sugar
Add the remaining 4 eggs & beat .
Add in bean mixture to the eggs, butter and sugar mix.
Add the cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and blend

Pour batter into greased ring tin pan and bake in oven for 30 minutes or until a skewer is clean  

The kids demolished and we made two in the space of a week.. kidney beans.. my kids demolished kidney beans!! Need I say more?

What healthy recipes do you have that your kids demolish? Do share :)
