Seriously Sneaky Chocolate Cake
Heat oven to 350°. Coat a 9-inch square baking pan with cooking spray. Line bottom with parchment; coat with more spray. Whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda.Advertisement
In food processor, combine beans, sugar, vanilla and salt. Process until smooth and blended. Add eggs, veg oil and 1/3 cup warm water. Process until smooth. Add flour mixture and process until blended.
Pour into pan and bake 35 min or until cake springs back when pressed. Cool 10 min, then run a thin knife between pan and cake. Flip cake over; remove parchment and cool completely. Frost cake with Ganache.
Bake 1 medium sweet potato (about 8 oz) at 375° for 45 min to 1 hr. Cool 10 min, then slice in half. Scoop out flesh (you'll need 1 cup) and place in food processor. Process until smooth. Add 1 cup chocolate chips (milk, semisweet or bittersweet) and process until smooth, scraping sides occasionally; the warm sweet potato puree will melt the chocolate. Cool 10 min, then spread on cake. Makes 1 1/2 cups.
