    I made this for a friend's birthday who has celiac disease and was pleasantly surprised. It is pretty sweet, but the raspberry sauce cut down on the sweetness. It was very chocolatey (almost like fudge) and the texture wasn't bad either. She kept the recipe so I guess she liked it too!!! - 5/14/08

    My husband and I were both skeptical, but we really enjoyed it. It was very dense and moist. It made me feel much less guilty than a similarly sized portion of traditional fudge cake. - 10/29/07

    I've made a similiar flourless chocolate cake for years. This was a nice variation. I also agree with the others, if you don't like it, (and never tried it) don't say anything. - 4/28/09

    My daughter wanted this cake for her birthday, and I made a double recipe (9" round pans) and set it up as a layer cake. It was filled and iced with a light cream cheese frosting. I can hardly call it healthy, but it is delicious! Be sure to cut small pieces, as the cake is rich. - 5/17/09

    Made this for dessert last night. I'm the only one gluten free and all four of us really enjoyed it. I didn't have egg substitute on hand so I used a total of 4 eggs. I sprinkled powdered sugar on top and then added fresh raspberries and drizzled with a few melted chocolate chips. - 9/15/13

    We tried it. Prior experience with chick peas helped me making this cake. I happen to love chick peas so it was nice and moist for me. I had to slap my husband's hand from going from seconds. - 4/28/09

    Whoever said this has 1 weight watchers point needs to recalculate. The figures given are for EACH SERVING, not for the whole cake. Each serving has 8 points, way too much for me to spend on a desert. - 4/28/09

    A creative and resourceful way to utilize a legume. With the continued scare tactics of possible rationing certain staples this is a smart and tasty alternative. This is a great food for the discerning gourmet or someone who wants to try something out of the ordinary! - 4/29/08

    From all of the comments, I will surely try this one! I love chickpeas anyway and there is so much fiber in them. Never thought of using them in a cake! - 4/28/09
