Whipped this up late today and cant believe how moist, easy and yummy this is. I too was put off by the beans but thanks to all your great reviews I am glad I gave it a try. Definitely a keeper thanks.

Friends (and fellow TMX owners) came over today and brought this cake with them.  It was absolutely delicious!  Although I have not cooked it myself yet, I can vouch for the delicious taste and velvety-smooth texture.  Will definitely be trying this one myself!

I love making this then telling people afterwards what was in it  ;D  Got rave comments from my Coeliac friend.

Isn't it great the unusual things we can make in our TMX - the most unexpected ingredients make some wonderful cakes and dishes.

I made the mixture for this today and cooked it as cupcakes. Unfortunately they sunk in the middle, but mum and SD really liked them because they were fudgy and moist (probably because they were undercooked :-)))

I'll definitely be making these again :D

Just made this recipe as cupcakes. Cooked for 25 mins, used water, cacao instead of cocoa and only half tbsp of vanilla. Made 12 cupcakes and a small star cake.

Very moist. Family loves them but I found them a tiny bit too rich, which could be the cacao and reduced vanilla. Will definitely make again though and tweak those two things.

Thanks for the recipe.

I also made this this morning, using three bean mix.  It is fantastic we couldn't believe the flavour and texture.  Thanks.   After doing step one I just put all the ingredients in the bowl and processed for 30 sec up to speed 7, Turned out great.   One ring tin and a very small loaf tin.

I have made this twice this week  :o :o Once as is in the recipe and the second time I made it with white beans, macadamia oil and replaced the cocoa with coconut - devine. The cake came out quite brown still as I used rapadura sugar.

Also cooked it in a loaf tin took 55 mins in my oven.

This will be a regular in my house I think.

Kathryn, I gave this recipe to my DD just this morning she was going home to make it to surprise some friends, I have just sent her a text with your recommendations for the alternative flavours, I'm going to give it a try too.

I think you would be able to use grape seed oil (or other mild oils) if you didn't have macadamia oil

I make this all the time now (well in cooler months)

I use olive oil and I blitz up the beans with the sugar at the start then just whizz everythign toghether till smooth. I often do a double batch (it just fits) as in winter I find the cake keeps for 3 days.

For my husbands 40th I made 3 of these - halved them and put jam and cram in them, piled them on top of each other and covered with ganache. It was rather over the top!

Sounds nice though .
