“This recipe doesn't taste like you would imagine. It's a huge hit with everyone who has tried it. It has a great flavor, and it is wonderful when its warmed with butter on it. People are always asking me to make them a loaf or two. Note: For best slicing results and a tender crust, wrap bread in aluminum foil and slice the next day. If you can wait that long...we can't.”

Doesn't taste like pork and beans at all. Tastes like a nice cinnamon bread with a crunchy crust. I do like the fact that the pureed beans add protein and fiber to the bread. I used Bush's original recipe beans with brown sugar and bacon instead of the traditional tomato based pork and beans. Fiber + protein + good taste = 5 stars



With a name like that, I simply had to give it a try. What a nice surprise! The aroma is fantastic. It carried all the way outdoors. The texture is moist and it has a nice crunchy crust. The taste is superb. Easy to make, lovely to smell and wonderful to taste. What more could we ask for? I will be passing this recipe on. Thanks!



This is a great recipe, almost identical to the 'Pork-n-Beans Cake' from this site. You don't have to puree the beans, just smash them well with a spoon and you'll be fine (and save on clean-up). Here's a link to the pork-n-beans cake, so you can compare and read more reviews (and there's a picture). http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Pork-n-Beans-Cake/Detail.aspx
