Instructions
Cake
  1. Sort and rinse Bob’s Red Mill Adzuki Beans. Combine in a small pot with water, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until soft, about 60 minutes. When beans have softened, drain and reserve cooking liquid.
  2. Place cooked beans and brown sugar in a food processor and puree, adding reserved cooking liquid 1 tsp at a time as needed, until smooth. Set puree aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9 x 13-inch cake pan with parchment paper.
  4. In a small bowl, combine Bob’s Red Mill Sweet White Rice Flour, baking soda and salt and set aside.
  5. In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or by hand, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 10 minutes. Add orange zest and eggs, one at a time, scraping down the bowl between additions.
  6. Add the dry ingredients, alternating with the milk and scraping down the bowl often, until a smooth batter is formed.
  7. Mix ½ cup of cake batter with the bean puree to lighten. Pour the remaining cake batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth top. Drop large dollops of the bean puree along the top of the cake batter. Run a butter knife though the bean puree, creating swirls in the cake batter.
  8. Bake until the edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pan and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 – 50 minutes. Let cool completely before icing.
Icing
  1. Whisk together the powdered sugar and orange juice until smooth. Drizzle and smooth the icing over the top of the cake. Let set before serving.
