Baked Bean Spice Cake

Recipe file created September 3, 2008.
My sister was looking for recipes to use up cans of Baked Beans. This is one of her favourites.

Ingredients

Preheat oven to 325 F. Grease 8X8 inch cake pan or two loaf pans.

Puree beans in a food processor or blender. Add some of the oil if needed.

Combine beans, oil and sugar in a large mixing bowl.

Add eggs and vanilla. Beat until light -- about 6 minutes.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and spices.

Add flour mixture all at once to bean mixture. Add raisins, if using. Stir just until mixed.

Pour into baking pans. Bake 45 to 50 minutes.

NOTE:

Beating the oil / sugar / egg mixture incorporates air into the batter. This makes the cake rise nicely. Try it with all of your cake recipes.
