Recipe by Jaz
"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (15 ounce) can

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.
I really enjoyed this recipe. Was looking for healthier protein rich, low-carb,etc, dessert options for my husband to take the edge off dieting. Was pleasantly surprised by the taste and texture of this recipe and was tempted to eat the whole thing myself! (and I'm not even much of a spice cake fan) I substituted the white sugar with healthier less processed sugars (combination of panella, sugar in the raw, etc) to increase the nutritional value and it was wonderful. Its a guilt-free treat my husband can eat any time of day when gets a sweet tooth. Shhhh, just don't tell him or the kids it's garbanzo beans!
Very nice flavour,hard to believe there is no flour. Best eaten the day it's baked. Mine was completely baked in 40 minutes. I would definitely recommend lining the bottom of the pan w/parchment, I used a well-buttered non-stick pan and the cake was a bit difficult to remove intact.
