Comment on this recipe

Editor's Note: This recipe had such weird ingredients, we just had to try it at home. It was worth the effort. This makes a very moist dessert, not unlike spice cake. And the fun begins when you tell your guests - mid-bite - they're eating pork and beans.

Ingredients

1 can (16 ounces) pork and beans, drained
1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple and juice (1 cup)
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup oil
4 eggs
Frosting:
3-1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick margarine
8 ounces cream cheese

Instructions

Mash beans and pineapple. Add remaining ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes on greased jelly roll pan. To make frosting, blend margarine and cream cheese. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat till smooth. Frost with cream cheese frosting.
