13 Unusual Bean Recipes ~ Desserts?!

I had a lot of fun finding this week’s 13: Baked Bean Desserts! Betcha didn’t know there were actually that many. I have linked each one to the recipe. I have only tried one or two, so I am not endorsing, just informing.

1. Spicy Bean Cake

2. Citrus Bean Cake (1 & 2 are variations of the same recipe and are found at the same site)

3. Pinto Bean Pie (like a mock pecan pie)

4. Pinto Bean Fudge

5. Black Bean Brownies

6. Pork & Beans Cake (I am not sure this sounds very good)

7. Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (GF)

8. Butter Bean Custard Pie (mock pumpkin pie)

9. Cherokee Bean Bread (a quick bread)

10. Pinto Bean Bread (a yeast bread)

11. Oatmeal and Bean Raisin Cookies

12. Breakfast Bean Cookies

13. Bean  Candy

If you decide to try any of these, be sure to come back and tell me about it. I am very curious!

  8. I haven’t used these specific recipes, but I regularly use beans in my cooking. I’ve used them in brownies, cakes, cookies, bread…. A bean puree can hide in almost anything, the plain bean hasn’t got a noticeable flavor. It visually hides easiest if you match the color of the bean to what you’re cooking; black beans in chocolate, pintos in wheat bread, white beans in white bread… etc. If the recipe calls for a large quantity of beans, I find I need a bit more sugar and/or salt to get the flavor
