DIRECTIONS

  • Put the adzuki beans in a food processor fitted with a sharp blade, and do a rough chop a few times.
  • Add the sugar, oil, and egg whites and pulse until they are blended together with no sugar clumps or bean pieces sticking out.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt together in a bowl, then pour this mixture into the food processor, and mix until a complete batter is formed. Add enough milk (dairy or otherwise) to the mixture to loosen it up enough to be pourable.
  • Pour the batter into lined Texas muffin or regular muffin tins.
  • Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes or until slightly browned on top.
  • Let cool for at least 45 minutes, or no longer warm, before adding frosting. I'd recommend my Matcha Green Tea Frosting, a good vanilla buttercream, or better yet an adzuki frosting!
