Apple Spice Cake

A moist, delicious cake made with--you guessed it--beans. My adaptation of the pinto bean cake


1 (15 1/2 oz) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 Omega-3 egg
1/4 cup smart balance buttery spread
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup ground walnuts
1 tbsp ground flax seed
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cloves
2 cups apple, peeled and sliced


Puree pinto beans in a blender or food processor with the egg.

In a large mixing bowl, beat smart balance and sugar. Add bean mixture and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients except apples.

Stir in apples by hand.

Bake in tube pan at 375 degrees for 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool completely before attempting to remove from pan
