Ingredients

    1 ¾ cups (425 mL) all-purpose flour

    1 cup (250 mL) packed brown sugar

    ¾ cup (175 mL) cocoa

    1 tsp (5 mL) baking powder

    1 tsp (5 mL) baking soda

    ¼ tsp (1 mL) salt

    1 cup (250 mL) canned lentils, rinsed and drained (half of 1-19 oz/540 mL can)

    ½ cup (125 mL) canola oil

    2 large eggs

    1 ½ cups (375 mL) milk

    2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla extract

    1 tsp (5 mL) instant coffee


Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, breaking up any lumps of brown sugar and cocoa.
  3. In a bowl of a food processor, pulse lentils, oil, and eggs until well blended; add milk, vanilla, and instant coffee and pulse until smooth. Add to dry ingredients and whisk until combined.
  4. Divide batter among paper-lined muffin tins, filling them about ¾ full. Bake for 25 minutes, until tops are springy to touch. Tip them a bit in their pans to let the steam escape and help them cool. Cool completely before frosting with your choice of frosting.
