As a recent weight-loss surgery survivor, I was looking for something to bake on my birthday that would FEEL like birthday cake without putting myself at risk. This was FANTASTIC. I read some of the reviews and found the feedback useful; however, I pretty much followed the recipe as is. I didn't have a food processor, so my blender got quite the work out. To battle the beans, I did add about 1/2 can of bean juice in during the grinding phase of the recipe. I used egg beaters (4 eggs = 1 cup egg beaters) and it was PHENOMENAL. My husband (who had a BAD experience with a Black Bean Chocolate Cake baked by a friend's wife) was amazed (and HE's the FOODIE). He asked that I make it for his "Guy Night". I made a few alterations, mostly to play with consistency (added raspberry-pear puree from the baby food aisle and a box of SF/FF chocolate fudge pudding), but again kept it all the same. Now his FRIENDS are asking for the recipe. I think this is a very versatile, very forgiving recipe if you're willing to spend the time ensuring the beans are broken down to a smooth, hummus-like consistency. I cannot wait to play with other flavor profiles. Thank you for this amazing recipe.
