‘Chocolate cake’ might be a bit of an understatement for this cake. Who would have imagined that a cake made with legumes could ever be this light and tasty?

This cake has a sophisticated bitterness to it – just add a little more stevia if you would like a sweeter version. Soak and cook your own kidney beans if you have the time – you’ll need 480 g (1 lb 1 oz) cooked beans.
