G-F, Zero Carb Low Fat, No Grain, Not Yucky Chocolate Cake

Unbelieveable?  Flourless, dairy free?    Too delicious to ever last for a photograph.  

Happy, happy, happy wedding for the son.  He's married a doll who is willing to learn to bake gluten-free.  This post is for her.  Maybe she can perfect this cake.  I am always struggling with it.  
++++++++++++++++++++


This recipe came from my g-f sister DawnL.  Yeah, the baby who accompanied me on dates in high school is now teaching me about gluten-free.  

She sent this recipe:  Gluten-free Chocolate Cake that doesn't budge the insulin levels in her son, my Type 1 diabetic nephew.  This Is It!  She says that some days he eats the whole thing.  Gotta love that kid.

This whole process happens in my blender--easily and in less than three minutes!

I'm having a hard time baking this because I tweek recipes, but here goes.  

1  15 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed

1/2 cup honey  (I have halved this, used date paste, and substituted with agave too.) 

1/4 cup oil - coconut or vegetable oil

5 eggs 

1/2 cup cocoa (I did not used dutched as it's too rich for me.)

1 Tablespoon baking powder 

1 Tablespoon soda 

dash of salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

Blend the mixture until smooth and pours like cake batter, not bread dough.  Add a splash of water if necessary.

I baked it at 350 25-30 minutes in an 8x8 pan just until I tapped the top and it sprang back.  It does not raise overly much.  
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


The homeschool kids gobbled it up this morning... however, I'm sure they are not renowned for a well-developed palate, pallet, palette?  Homophones!  Grrrrr.

YIKES! Good save on the eggs question. That's what I get for rushing through and posting middle of the night. Thanks!

WINNER!! I only used 4 eggs. It was insane amazing and people did not believe that it was dairy, sugar and gluten free. That is, it WAS dairy and sugar free until I covered it with whipped cream and canned cherries. MMMmmmmMMMmm.
