I have been trying to get more beans into my families diet because they are so good for you. We even like beans, but sometimes you feel like something different. I found a recipe online that was called Pork-n-Beans Cake. I thought it would be fun to try something like that, and this is what I came up with. My entire family loves these. You can't taste the beans. Really . They would easily make a nice cupcake with cream cheese frosting. Try them and ask people what the weird ingredient is, (they never know:) This makes a big batch. Feel free to add cranberries, raisins, or pecans...they taste great in these.
