Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
  • 1 (15oz) can S&W® Black Beans (drained, rinsed)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee crystals or powder, if desired
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

Heat oven to 375°F. Grease 8 or 9-inch square cake pan with coconut oil or shortening. Sprinkle bottom and sides of pan with 1 tablespoon of the cocoa powder.

Place beans and water in food processor. Cover; process 1 minute or until smooth. Add coconut oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla. Cover; process 1 minute or until smooth. Add remaining cocoa powder, baking powder, coffee, baking soda and salt. Cover; process 30 seconds or until mixed. Spread in pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until top is set and sides start to pull away from pan. Do not overbake. Cool 1 hour before cutting. Store at room temperature.

Tips: A small amount of coffee enhances the flavor of chocolate desserts without adding a real coffee flavor. You can omit the coffee if you prefer.

This moist cake is delicious served with ice cream and a little chocolate sauce drizzle.
