Spicy and moist, you won't believe this cake contains garbanzo beans (chickpeas). The batter is runny so don't worry. Other spices can be added or substituted (cloves or mixed spices). Less sugar can be used or a suitable sugar-substitute.

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.

I made this for a friend who has to follow a gluten free diet. She was so surprised to have a cake she could actually eat safely. I thought the orange flavor was overwhelmed by the spices, but I believe they can be adjusted. Thanks for a gluten free recipe that doesn't cost too much to make.

I made this cake today and I was very impressed how well it turned out. It is a very simple and easy recipe that turned out tasting great.We had it for dessert topped with cool whip and it tasted like pumpkin pie. Will definately be making this again.What a great healthy alternative.
