Vanilla Bean Cake
2 1/2 cups cooked white beans (very well cooked or canned...must be soft!)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3-1/2 cup honey
Puree well in food processor or use immersion blender.
1/4 cup oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
Bake at 325-350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Very moist and dense cake, but its very filling.
