It is delicious!!!!!
I didn't have 4 eggs, so I used 2 instead and 3/4 cup all-whites egg substitute. Came out light and yummy. I also added just a little bit of s/f caramel topping and drizzled over the top before baking.
Thanks so much for the recipe! It is a hit! :)

Did you make the chocolate version she posted the other day?
There are so many options with that recipe. I'm trying to figure out a way to make one with rhubarb... maybe throw in some blueberries or strawberries to sweeten it up a little bit... it sounds nummy...

I'm putting raspberries in my version tonight. Did the new version get posted in the recipe section? I can't find it, I'm just making it up as I go.

Can someone tell me where to find this recipe? It sounds sooo good!

it's the mock cornbread recipe. Cyn started the modifying and I think if you search coffee cake you might find that version.

Actually Cottage started the modifying and I ran with it. That was after Jenne made it in the pan without the casserole part ;) I didn't post the recipe because I don't have the timing quite right on the baking. Tips from those who tried it?
I guess Cottage and I should go ahead and post a couple of the modifications. There's a super moist version and a cakier version :)

Actually, it was Kara who first tweaked the original recipe to make a mock cinnamon coffee cake. That just inspired me to experiment with the recipe, too.

:lol: You ladies sound like my kindergartners,
"She did it first!"
"It was HER idea!"
"Well she started it and I was only copying her."
:D Thank you all for trying it! Now post your recipes so I can try it! LOL

LOL Heidi. You're funny! When my sister taught kindergarten, she had a bulletin board with a big ear and every time one of the kids came over to her to tattle, she sent him/her to the big ear. LOL
When I made the cinnamon coffee cake, I just replaced the cumin with cinnamon and then I think I made a crumb topping with some agave and oats and oat flour and swirled it in and then put it on top as well.

Here is the post regarding Kara's version; http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/south-beach-diet/192777-sweet-mock-cornbread.html.
I'm really enjoying trying some different versions of this cake. What I've really noticed, is that when I make a SBD friendly cake with whole wheat, that I super obsess about it until it's gone....wanting more than I should have. With these bean cakes, I find I'm able to have a piece after dinner and be satisfied.
I cooked a huge pot of white beans yesterday which I'm going to puree and portion out for freezing. That will simplify the process when I want to bake.

Thanks Debbie! I attempted a mod trick and added Kara's original post to the desserts thread (I hope!).
It will be fun to see the variations in that recipe thread :)

you all are too much.
yay for TEAMWORK!
I am going to make something sweet too this weekend so get those recipes up there.

Actually, I was referring to the chocolate snack cake that is made with white beans.. (which you can't even taste!)
This cake was so good, I will only be making it once every other month or so. I really indulged in this! :)

the bean brownies momo?
03-11-2010, 06:09 PM
It was the PB chocolate mock snack cake. It's on the March daily thread. I think she said she crossed 2 different recipes. I'm telling y'all.... it is GOOD.
03-11-2010, 08:45 PM
The PB/Choc recipe is now in our recipe section. http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/desserts-phase-2/196447-mock-snack-cake.html#post3195338
I have yet to try it, but I'm so sold on Karas Beany Brownies that I know the PB/Choc cake has to be super great, too.

o.k. I made it early evening. delicious. I only used 1/3 cocoa because that's all it had. 1/4 agave nectar(its expensive here) 1/4 cup splenda. I sprayed my pan with pam put the batter in and then sprinkled 1/4 cup walnuts and gently mixed it. Probably would have been better to put the batter in a bowl and mix in the walnuts (I tried to have less dishes to wash). Oh yes, I don't have a blender so did it in the food processor. 350 for 25 minutes was just right.
Now should I tell DH its made with beans that way it would all be mine or pretend like its a regular cake?
