I really wanted to make something to bring when I met her, but this was my first encounter with gluten free baking. I decided upon a flourless chocolate cake because you can make it with black beans or chickpeas to make it gluten-free. No one even knew there were beans in the cake because you couldn’t taste it. By substituting silken tofu for eggs, I was able to make this delicious flourless chocolate cake not only gluten-free but also vegan. This vegan, gluten-free flourless chocolate cake is so moist and has such a great smooth texture. It’s also quite rich in flavor. The flavor from the chickpeas and the tofu is very subtle, which allows the flavor of the chocolate to really come through. Then you’ll need to get out your Vitamix or food processor to make this recipe. What will need to go into your Vitamix or food processor first are the garbanzo beans, silken tofu, and the vanilla extract. If not, you will need two cups of cooked garbanzo beans. For the silken tofu, you’ll be putting one cup, about half of the package, into your Vitamix or food processor. Add in your one teaspoon of vanilla extract, and then process this for a minute or two. Next add in your 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and your 3/4 cup of light brown sugar. You can also use white sugar, but I prefer brown sugar personally. Process this for another minute or two. Now you’ll need to make a double boiler to melt your chocolate. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can easily make one by taking a pot and filling it up with water about 1/4 of the way.
