  1. Note on using lentils: If using canned lentils, drain first and omit salt; if using dry (my preference is dry red lentils) measure 1/3 cup rinsed lentils into saucepan, add 2/3 cup water and bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes (may need to add a small amount of water) cool and measure.
  2. Mash lentils with a fork in mixing bowl.
  3. Add eggs, oil, sugars, and vanilla extract to lentils.
  4. Mix just to combine.
  5. Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cocoa and cinnamon in separate bowl.
  6. Add dry mixture and blend until combined.

  9. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes.
