Use this in place of corn bread!! This is VERY good! Kids even think it's great because it's sweet!

  • Servings: Depends on how ya slice it!
  • Prep Time: 15-20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 45-50 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hr plus

Ingredients:

2 cups Granulated Sugar
1 cup Vegetable Oil
3 Eggs
1 can (16oz) Pork-n-beans, drained
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
½ tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Baking Soda
1 cup Raisins, optional
1 tsp Vanilla

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine sugar, oil, eggs, and beans. Beat until smooth. Combine next four ingredients in a separate bowl and after mixed well, stir into bean mixture until well combined. Stir in raisins and vanilla last.

OR ---

Combine sugar, oil and beans in a 12 cup food processor. Put on high until beans are completely mushed. Turn off processor and add eggs, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and vanilla. Turn on processor on high for a minute. Shut off and add the flour last. Turn on high to blend flour into batter for about a minute. Scrap down sides if necessary; blend again.

Now, there are FOUR ways to bake this bread. So, here they are:

1) Grease and flour 5 - 16oz. cans and fill 2/3 full of batter. Place cans on baking sheet and bake at 325 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Make sure to check your bread after 30 minutes, just to be safe. Now, if I have had the oven on a lot for other baking prior to mixing this bread up, I know this bread won't take quite the 45-50 minutes.

2) Split mixture into two loaf pans that are well greased and floured. Bake at 325 degrees for 45-50 minutes also.

3) Fill two -- "mini loaf" pans 2/3's full in each spot. Bake at 325 degrees for 25-30 minutes. (Batter makes 14-16 mini loaves)

4) Use 2 muffin pans filling each spot 1/2 to 2/3s full in each spot. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes. Batter makes 23-24 muffins.

I've made this bread in both gas and electric ovens. When making this bread in an electric oven, I needed to make sure the rack was in the middle. Gas, I moved the rack one notch above the middle.

NOTE: Do not use sugar replacement in this recipe as it does not turn out well at all.
