This is a super recipe! Made it for DD's birthday recently .... Didn't realise I only had 2 red candles.. ran with what we had :). Served with diced strawberries  and a coffee liqueur laced custard...

Wow lovely GF. 

I made this as cupcakes with choc icing and it is the first gone in my bake up.  I made everyone try and guess the secret ingredient, no one did and where totally shocked when I told them, but all will happily have it again even the fussy choc loving 5 yr old.

My family won't eat this. Makes me annoyed because you really wouldn't know. They are suspicious anytime I make a choc cake now. My 4 yr old loves it though.

I make this regularly. I don't use macadamia oil, is that in the recipe? I use butter. I reduced the sugar, too.

I've made a caramel one with butter beans, rapadura and coconut flour which is also divine. It's an amazing cake.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

The cake was a success with no one picking it had beans in it ... Definitely will make it again & good to have a GF option
