“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

IMPROVED Black Bean Chocolate Cake
I have been tweaking this recipe and came up with a really good one. This is much better than the one I posted here
Gluten Free Black Bean Chocolate Cake
3/4 cup black beans, soaked overnight, then cooked till very tender and drained well.
1/4 cup plus 1 TLB canola oil
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 TLB vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 cup EnerG Rice Mix (a mixture of rice flour and sweet rice flour) (available in a box)
(1/2 cup chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips) optional!
Mix black beans and oil, adding 1 egg at a time until beans are mixed VERY well.
You can use a food processor if you have one to mix beans and oil and turn into a paste.
Add all dry ingredients and mix WELL.
Add optional ingredients last and stir
Spray a bundt pan with non stick spray and spread batter into pan
Cook at 350º preheated oven until done..... around 35 minutes or until tester comes out clean.
This one turned out REALLY good. My husband's employee is a rather picky eater and he liked it.
Then we told him what was in it, and he finished it! LOL
Now I need to come up with a glaze....
