Not even I could screw up this cake. I have been eyeing this recipe for months uncertain of a bean batter. It is absolutely a great cake (and mini muffins). I used GF Venchi chocolate bars instead of chocolate chips and it was rich and delicious. Being sceptical, I tasted the batter and was impressed that it didn't taste like chickpeas. The end product is brownie like in texture, rich and moist. It wasn't too sweet either. The cake is delicious and not a bean taste anywhere. UPDATE: I have also used coconut sugar instead of white sugar and it works perfectly. In one attempt I tried cutting down the white sugar by 1/4 and it crumbled a lot but was still tasty. As an alternative to cake, other than treating this like a brownie, baking it in a rectangular or square pan, I made this in a thin baking sheet and once completely cooled, cut them into cookie shapes for the kids. A big hit! Thanks CCumins for sharing this recipe.
