Chocolate and azuki

Azuki beans (3 half-cups, just boiled in water) and an 1 egg for the base.
Four tbs of cocoa powder and 10g of cocoa paste for the choco taste.
A tbs of dried currents and 1/2 an apple for sweetness (you would probably add sugar)
A little kirsch liquor and butter, to make it sinful.

All that in the blender, then in slow-heat oven (170 deg C) 50 minutes.
Let it cool. Wait 24 to 48 hours to eat… well, you should, flavors take time to develop.


My stock of azuki beans. I rehydrate one night, cook a big batch and freeze them in sillicone muffin tray.

For 2 small cakes :
Cal 508 F15.4g C64.8g P23.5g
1 serving of 1/2 cake :
Cal 127 F3.8 C16.2 P5.9

Fr :
Fondant au chocolat et azuki
3 demi-tasses de haricots azuki cuits, un oeuf, 4 cs de cacao non sucre, 10 g de pate de cacao, une noix de beurre, une lichetropette de kirsch, une demi-pomme, un cs de cassis seches.
Le tout mixe, cuit a four doux (170 degres) 50 min. Laissez refroidir 24 a 48 heures (si, si c’est mieux pour le gout)

Et c’est tres bon. Ca font dans la bouche. Avant que les mauvais esprits ne demandent : non, non, ca n’a aucun gout de cassoulet, c’est un fondant tres chocolate et subtilement fruite.
C’est peu sucre et ca me convient, mais peut-etre que beaucoup rajouteraient 1 ou 2 cuillerees de sucre.

    • Wait… That’s what they often say in cookbooks. Unfortunately, that’s true cakes and terrines are better later. I made 2 as you see, I ate the second the next day… and regretted not having waited before eating the first.

  5. Hello! I am so happy I have discovered your blog! Congratulations for your weight loss! Finally someone, who eats practically everything, but pays attention to keep her weight. I try to do the same, but I only start learning Japanese cuisine (not because of its lightness but taste!) and find it a perfect way to enjoy meals without feeling guilty. Unfortunately, I have Western cuisine cravings too often (French desserts, cheese and baguette kill me)…
    I have never cooked azuki beans… This chocolate cake looks like a great idea.
