Chickpea and chocolate cake with nuts. Recipe with Thermomix

With this recipe from chickpea and chocolate cake with nuts I am going to ask you to do the same as when I presented the cocoa and mayonnaise cake, that is, do not tell your guests what the ingredients are until they have tried it. Take the test, they will not guess.

I don't know if the chickpeas or the banana, but the result is a wet and fluffy dough, which with the crispy counterpoint that gives the nuts make this one of the best chocolate biscuits I've prepared. And it is also very easy to do.

Ingredients for a plum cake mold

  • the skin of a clean and dry orange (only the white part), 140 g of brown sugar, 200 g of cooked and drained chickpeas, 1 ripe banana, 150 g of orange juice, 3 eggs, 80 g of cocoa powder, 1/2 sachet of yeast, 50 g of chopped nuts, ground sugar to sprinkle.

How to make chickpea and chocolate cake with nuts

We start preheating the oven at 180 ° C. Then, we put the orange peel and sugar in the glass and pulverize 20 sec / vel 7. Add the chickpeas, the banana, juice and crush 30 sec / vel progressive 5-10.

With a spatula, we lower the ingredients towards the bottom of the glass. We place the selector in vel 3.5 (without programming time) and we are adding the eggs one by one by the mouthpiece, until they are fully integrated.

With the machine stopped we incorporate the cocoa, the yeast and we program 10 sec / vel 6. Again we lower the ingredients of the walls towards the bottom of the glass. Add the nuts and mix with the spatula.

We pour the mixture into a cake mold, previously greased with butter, and bake at 180 ° C for 40 or 45 minutes. Let the cake cool slightly before unmolding and once it is very cold we sprinkle it with ground sugar.
