A delicious (and gluten-free) chocolate cake with a healthy difference—red kidney beans! Sarah Wong’s recipe is one of the best known on the official Thermomix community recipe sharing site, however, there are thousands of other great recipes in here, with new ones posted every day here.
This gluten-free, but free, high protein cake is wonderfully moist and works with most canned beans. Chickpeas work but they have a bit of a strong taste.
I wanted to share it here just in case you haven’t tried this yet. Do try it. If anyone is familiar with my cooking, I am a strictly a non-GF, child-friendly family household. As a Thermomix Advisor I know of many unique and quirky recipes but often don’t make them, as usually there’s no point, they just don’t get eaten by my kids. If this kidney bean chocolate cake got past Milan’s taste test (i.e. he had no idea he wasn’t) then I call that a fabulous result and encourage anyone and everyone trying to diversify their repertoire and sneak vegetables into their kid’s diets.
