One 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
One 16-ounce box angel-food cake mix
1 cup pitted dates, chopped (about 20 small or 10 large)
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Store-bought vanilla frosting
Cook cupcake batter immediately or the angel food cake will deflate, and you'll wind up with flattened (albeit delicious!) cupcakes.
