Gluten Free Chocolate Chickpea Cake Recipe to MakeGluten Free Chickpea Chocolate Cake

My daughter Karissa made this cake this past weekend, and did not tell anyone it was made of chickpeas, and no one even guessed -- or asked any questions ... they just loved it!

It's amazing how your taste buds are influenced by what you know ...  or think you know is included in the recipe ingredients!

Whoever said that "gluten free" didn't taste good?

This recipe will soon become a family favourite.

You can make it in any round baking tin, or, for special occasions, such as Valentine's Day or Birthday's it's easy to make in a heart-shaped, or other shape baking pan.

I used a small "heart-shaped baking pan", and made a half-dozen cupcakes with the left-over batter.

Making a Gluten Free Chocolate Cake and Cupcakes How toMaking Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes


Note - Be sure to read the labels on all the ingredients to be sure they are listed as being "gluten free".

1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
1 can - 19 oz./540 ml. size - chickpeas, rinsed and drained
4 medium size eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup raspberry jam
dusting of icing sugar
fresh raspberries, for garnishing, optional


In a double-boiler or heatproof bowl set over a pot of barely simmering water, melt the chocolate chips or pieces, stirring until smooth. (Or, melt the chocolate chips or pieces in a microwave-safe bowl with a couple teaspoons of vegetable oil at a medium-low setting).

Combine the chickpeas (rinsed and drained), the eggs, and the sugar in a blender or a food processor.

Process until the mixture is smooth.

Add the raspberry jam and the melted chocolate to the blender/food processor, and blend until the mixture is smooth and well blended.

Grease a 9" round, or heart-shaped, cake pan, and either line it with parchment paper, or dust the bottom and sides of the pan with sifted gluten-free cocoa powder.

Spread the batter in the prepared cake pan, and/or cupcake papers.

Bake at 350° F for about 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

The cupcakes take about 25 minutes to bake.

Allow cake to cool for about 10 minutes, then remove it from the pan and allow it to cool completely on a wire rack.

Dust top of gluten free chocolate chickpea cake with icing sugar, and garnish with fresh raspberries, if desired.

Baking Tip

If you are interested in baking with the most "eco-friendly" tools, then consider purchasing silicone muffin /cupcake baking cups.

We used them for the first time to make these gluten free chocolate cupcakes, and I was actually amazed at how they turned out.

We greased them with non-stick cooking spray, then placed the filled silicone cups on parchment paper, on a cookie tray.

We were very happy with the outcome, and they are easy to remove from the silicone cups.

They are available for online purchase at *Amazon.com.
