"Secret" Recipe

Okay... you just HAVE TO try this recipe.

It's gluten free and has a "secret ingredient" that will leave your guests (or kids or husband) stunned!

It's super moist, super yummy, and easy to make! Add some creamy vanilla ice cream and ooey gooey hot fudge or chocolate frosting... and you're in business!!

Without further ado...

Black Bean Cake
1 can (19 oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed
3 eggs
1/3 c. oil
2 Tbsp. vanilla
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1 1/4 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a blender mix beans, eggs, oil, and vanilla until smooth. Mix dry ingredients together. Pour bean mixture over dry ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour batter into a greased 9" square pan. Bake for approximately 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
