I know that I promised while back that I wouldn't post any more recipes for a while...but this one was just too good not to pass on to you!
You can thank my Baby Sis for bringing this one to my attention. Sometimes, I think she is nearly as weird as I am!
PORK AND BEANS BREAD
15 ounce can of pork and beans.
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup vegetable oil (not canola, not olive...vegetable oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup chopped pecan or walnuts (measure after chopping)
3 cups all purpose flour
Spray two 9 inch by 5 inch loaf pans with Pam or another cooking spray.
Don't drain the pork and beans. Pour them into a food processor or blender, juice and all, and process them until they're pureed smooth with no lumps.
Place the beaten eggs in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the pureed pork and beans and mix them in well.
Add the vegetable oil and the vanilla extract. Mix well. Add the sugar and mix in. Then mix in the baking soda, baking powder, salt and Cinnamon. Stir until everything is incorporated.
Stir in the chopped nuts.
Add the flour in one cup increments, stirring after each addition.
Spoon half of the batter into each loaf pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes, and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center.
Remove from pans and cool on a wire rack. Can be stored in the freezer for 3 months
Now, believe me when I say that if you don't tell anyone what's in this bread...they will never know! Trust me when I say that this bread is very, very good! It has a flavor that you just can't pin down and yet is familiar!
Now, my friends, let's get some coffee and sit in the kitchen for a bit. Want a slice of pork and beans?
