I have never seen a Pork N Beans Cake recipe. I got this from my late Uncle and it tastes like a Spice Cake when completed. I had my doubts, but it is a very good and great cake to fool people with when they try it. Very easy to make great for company functions.

What a great cake recipe. I was intrigued by the "weird, secret ingredient" and had to try this recipe. No on would ever guess this had pork and beans in it. I used the blender to blend the beans into liquid. My DH guessed the secret was pineapple; a friend guessed carrots. Boy, were they surprised when I told them the real ingredient. This cake reminds many of a carrot-type cake. This would be a great conversation starter at a pot luck or company function. 5 stars for wacky ingredient, 5 stars for taste, and 5 stars for moist cake. Good job!
