Ricetta Butter and Flour Free Chocolate Cake

This contains chickpeas which might sound strange but actually works really well! It doesn't taste particularly 'chickpea'-like and is still incredibly moist despite having no butter.

You can easily make this completely gluten-free by using gluten-free baking powder too.

This was made in an 8" square tin.

    This does sound strange, but in an intriguing - want to try it sort of way. What an interesting idea, can't wait to try it!

      Doesn't sound strange at all, I've been making a very similar version of this for years (mine uses cocoa instead of the melted chocolate and a splash of orange juice to help the baking powder rise a bit). And I wizz my chickpeas in a food processor to puree them, but this is basically the same thing. It really does taste like fudgy brownies, people are always amazed that there's no flour in these...and they're so healthy, too!

            I love this recipe, my husband and I ate the whole pan in two days, now I'm trying them with shredded coconut in them.

              Mm, chocolate and coconut is a great combo, sounds fantastic! You might also enjoy my Light Chocolate Coconut Squares, uploaded elsewhere on this site (minus the chickpeas ;-) x

                    Hi Nukhet

                    You're welcome! Hm, I'm not sure actually, if you were wanting to make it less chocolately-tasting, perhaps subbing in half amount of puréed fruit like raspberry or strawberry? Or if you're wanting to cut back on the fat/sugar content, then perhaps sub in some healthier olive oil?

                    However, I'm not entirely sure that either would work because it might be messing up the structure of the cake a bit - but you've now given me inspiration to play around this recipe so I'll post up an alternative recipe soon if the experimentation goes well!

                    Hi Catherine, yeh I tested this on my hungry aikido guys yesterday and they all wolfed it down! I think this was my first (successful) attempt at flourless cake so would love to see what recipes you have if you've got any to share!

                      I love flourless cake, but I've never tried a butter free. I should try it! This cake looks and sounds delicious! Cheers~

                      Hi Kathy, I had to mash the chickpeas because I haven't got round to buying a blender yet! Will have to try out your version one day :-)

                        Thanks Lauren, yes I thought it was really strange when I first heard of it but it actually does taste quite chocolatey and not too much of chickpeas :-)
