Pour into a 9×13 pan. (I use a glass casserole dish). Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until cake is set in the middle, and a knife inserted near the middle comes out almost clean. This particular cake needs the lower temperature and the longer baking time.

Remove from the oven and let the cake cool COMPLETELY before frosting! 🙂

I cut this into 12-16 pieces to keep it within an E setting while following Trim Healthy Mama.

Enjoy! And plan to have a FP (Fuel Pull..a Trim Healthy Mama term) with this to complete your meal or snack!

    1. Garbanzo bean flour are garbanzo beans ground into flour. Another name for garbanzos is chickpeas, or chickpea flour..when it is ground. You may be able to get this from your local health food store. I also plan to carry it in my store, soon!
