My take on the Magic Bean Cake.

There is a popular cake in the Thermomix world known as the Magic Bean Cake. It's a wonderfully tasty chocolate cake made with a special 'secret' ingredient....well that is until you tell your guests the name of the cake. It is gluten free (actually it's free from any flour at all) which is very appealing to me but I also try to limit or avoid dairy too. So I set out to make this delish cake; Saunig family friendly! And you know what? I think my version is even better....yay!! Try it for yourself.....

400g can butter beans
1 tbs water or coffee (I use a shot of decaf from our coffee machine)
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
1 egg

Add to Thermomix. Speed 7, until smooth. Set aside.

Add to TM
120g Coconut oil (I use Loving Earth Coconut butter, such a lovely flavour)

170g Rapadura
Speed 5, 30 seconds.

4 eggs

Beat speed 4, 20 seconds.

Bean mixture
Speed 4, 5 seconds.

70g Cacao powder

1tsp baking powder (If you require gluten free cake, make sure your baking powder is gluten free, if not just use normal baking powder)
1/2 tsp Bi-carb Soda
Pinch of Himalayan Rock Salt
Speed 4, 10 seconds.

Pour batter into greased and lined ring tin and bake on 180c for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. 

Enjoy =)
