Protein packed lemon drizzle chickpea cake!

This cake is gluten and dairy and free and packed with protein! So easy to make too! 410g tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
 3 eggs
 1 lemon
 170g caster sugar
 1 - 2 tbspns clear honey

 Put the chickpeas in a food processor and blitz until they make a paste. Add the eggs, sugar, zest of the lemon and juice of half the lemon and blitz until it makes a batter. Pour into a well-greased and lined 2lb loaf tin, and cook in a medium oven, 160C, for around 45 mins. Remove from the oven and drizzle over the honey. Leave to cool for 15 minutes, then pour over the juice of the other half of the lemon. Leave to cool completely before removing, carefully, from the tin. This cake has the texture of Madeira cake, and really doesn't taste of chickpeas. You can also make it with orange and with lime. It will keep for up to a week, but does not freeze well.


Ok I made Hummus with a tin of chick peas yesterday but I'll be giving your cake a go today.


That's a hell of a name for a cake - great for those with gluten intolerances (or avoidances). will definitely be trying that one - sounds moist!


....this looks interesting might give this a go over the weekend thanks for posting it.....


Okay, that seems really unlikely that those ingredients mixed together and baked would result in a cake. Did you try it Luckyone?

....yes am also interested in knowing how it turned out.....I told my partner I may do it in the weekend and he looked at me puzzled....lol

If you try it, post pics!! And a review :)
