Choco Brownie Cake

Choco Brownie Cake

Hey you!

Today I tried something new and again easygoing! You will not believe what is inside: yes kidney beans!! It sounds a bit awkward, but at the end it is not, as you cannot even smell them in the cake. The consistency and taste get very nice after baking. Somehow it gets juicy and gives you a touch of a brownie!

If you feel your dough is too fluid, thicken it with sweet lupine flour.

Not even one friend notice, that there are actual beans inside! Well, what are you waiting for?

Here the Recipe!
