Spicy and moist, you won't believe this cake contains garbanzo beans (chickpeas). The batter is runny so don't worry.

Yield:
1 8-inch square cake

Ingredients

  • 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves (Optional)

  • 3 eggs, beaten

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder

  • 1 orange, zested and juiced

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square cake pan or line with parchment paper.

  2. Process garbanzo beans in a food processor until smooth. Add cinnamon and cloves and pulse until combined. Add eggs, sugar, baking powder, and orange zest; process until just combined. Stir orange juice into garbanzo mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Remove cake from pan and cool completely on a wire rack before cutting into squares.

Cook's Note:

Other spices can be added or substituted (cloves or mixed spices). Less sugar can be used or a suitable sugar substitute.
