Have you ever tried a pork and bean cake?

I found a recipe of my grandmas yesterday in her old cook book. She had it circled and wrote the best cake ever.

I'm going to make it, but I'm seriously scared to tell anyone it has a can of pork and beans in it. Lol!

Have you ever tried it?

  • Holy moley my grandmother made this, as well. It must be a southern thing because I haven't thought of this or seen it in years.

    It's very good. Just keep the P&B a secret lol

  • I'm sorry but that sounds so gross! I haven't been able to try black bean brownies yet either, too weird imo.
