I ate my bean muffin top this morning for breakfast. I put 1 tsp of sf strawberry jam on top and heated it up in the nuker.

Pretty tasty today.

okay, i just made a white bean cake w/ vanilla davincis and a little pumpkin spices. I was surprised it tastes like cake, not like beans. The batter smelled like beans so I was worried. I cant wait to experiement w/ more davincis flavors. Mine came out more like a pancake, its good.

Did you remember to put your dry milk in and baking powder? Mine always comes out tall. I love trying the DaVinci syrups! Yum!!! When I make the vanilla with the cinnamon or pumpkin spices I like to mix Splenda and cinnamon and sprinkle over the top of the batter before baking.

I usually use a brownie type pan.....8x8 or something like that. I also make it in a bread pan when I want to call it "bread".

Good idea to sprinkle the top before baking. I have some Brown Sugar Twin I might try with the cinnamon.

It is kinda good like a pancake, would be good w/ syrup!! mmmmm. I'm so surprised by this cake. I wonder what would happen if you poured the batter in a pan and fried up come cakes. mmmm. I was also thinking you could make a McDonalds McGriddle like thing by putting some eggs and cheese in between two thin slices of bean cake. oohh, it is also good dipped in chili, sweet like corn bread.

The Rosemary sounds heavenly. I personally like onion and garlic! hmmmm

This bean cake sounds like the New Tofu.

If you don't have the Davinci Syrup, Can you use vanilla extract?

4 eggs (egg beaters work fine also).
1 cup of artificial sweetener ( I used Splenda).
1/4 cup dry milk (helps to make it rise)
2 tsp. baking powder
2 Tbsp. oil
a splash of DaVinci SF syrup

Put all of the above in your processor and beat the heck out of it. The recipes says 5 minutes....I found a couple of minutes was plenty. The mixture will be real thin. It amazed me how it raised and baked. I thought it might not due to how thin the mixture was.....no problem. It raised great! Bake at 350* for 35-45 minutes. (35 worked for my oven). This is so quick and easy to make. It is fun trying different ways of making it.

Different ways I have made this:
Choc. peanut butter cake. I made this with the brown beans. I added 2 tsp. of cocoa, and a splash of vanilla DaVinci to the batter. After putting it in the pan to bake I took 2 tsp. of peanut butter and mixed a little DaVinci syrup in to thin it a little. Any flavor such as vanilla, marshmallow, or peanut butter flavor will do. I dropped drops of the PB mixture over the top of the cake and baked. YUMMY!!!!!! Good warm or cold!

Pumpkin Cinnamon cake: I made this in a bread pan. It is nice to have in the mornings I think. I call this a bread . I used the brown beans. To the batter I added 2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice and a splash of Spice syrup. After putting the batter in the pan, I sprinkled over the top a mixture of Splenda and cinnamon, along with a few toasted sliced almonds. YUMMY!!!!!

White cake: I have only made this once. You can add all kinds of DaVinci syrups. Cookie Dough, Peanut butter, Coconut,pineapple, French vanilla, Spice, etc.....I used the vanilla syrup and added some spices to the top of the cake aloong with a little peanut butter drops. . It turned out good also.
Just use your imagination and have fun!
I made your Chocolate Cake! The only thing I didn't use was the Syrup (didnt have it). I improvised and also added walnuts and unsweetened choc chips. I baked it for 45 minutes and the cake was still kinda gooey like bread pudding instead of cake. I wonder if the use of Egg beaters made it a different consistency....or the size of a my pan 6 inch? I am going to have to tweak the recipe a bit. Either use muffin pans or less egg beater. It was Delicious!!! Thanks Nana Susie

I think using the vanilla would work fine. You may want to add a little sweetener since DaVinci is sweet. It is a fun recipe to play with! I don't know who invented this cake but I sure am glad they did!

Ok this is a really stupid question but should I cook the beans before I put them in the mix? The batch I made is really thick and I didn't cook the beans first.

Nope, you don't cook them. Just use canned beans. Rinse them good and drain them.

Well if you use uncooked beans you will need to cook them first. I would still rinse them aftr cooking them before using them.

i dont know why but the uncooked bean in the bag thing made me giggle

anyway, with the chewy brownies....what are black beans (like mexican beans?) and what is essence of vanilla? Is that vanilla extract?

ok, also im so new to SB..i start Saturday and still havent bought the book (have surgery tomorrow so can read it while in bed lol) is there a limit as to how much of the cake your allowed to eat? I'm an atkins girl so im just not used to the idea of eating cake without guilt lol.

no i dont mean can i eat the whole cake at once...like i could ever do that (ok ok so i have eaten a tin of brownies at once but ummmmm its a secret so dont tell) but there is a huge difference btw a 2 inch square and a 4 inch square 3 times a day

thanks!

The brown beans are "pinto" beans. I also use black beans for making the brownie's. I use DaVinci vanilla syrup. I think you could use vanilla extract also. DaVinci syrups are wonderful. They come in all flavors. You can buy the SF vanilla at Wal Mart. Also Hazelnut I think. Marshall's department store carries them also at times. You can order them online also. At our local coffee shop you can buy the syrups in all kinds of flavors. I bought chocolate yesterday. I would like to figure out the calories and carbs for the cake. Does anyone recall the name of the place you can go to that you can put the info in to figure out that info?

Fit Day! Yes that is it. I couldn't remember the name. I also have a large amount of DaVinci Syrups. They come in handy. I like using them in my plain yogurt. I think I have a sugar headache tonight. I am not one to have head aches but when I go off sugar I get one for a couple of days on and off.

Ok I have a question, you say Black Beans, can I use the
canned Black Soy Beans by Eden??? They don't really get soft per say, even if you cook them for a while. Any thoughts?? Thanks

edit to add: I am for sure going to try it the savory way someone suggested, it sounds yummy both ways

I haven't tried the soy beans, but I would guess it would be ok. The ole food processor blends just about anything.
