I did tell them what I had been told by a co-worker, she said without any emotion at all:
She has spoke of that night, often, in the years that have passed. And I can’t say she is any less annoyed with me. But could it be that for a short time………….
1 c raisins
1 c boiling water
1 16 oz can pork and beans
2 c sugar
1/2 c oil
1 t vanilla
2 c flour
1 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1 c chopped walnuts, optional
Place the raisins in a small bowl, cover with the boiling water, set aside.
Place the pork and beans in large mixing bowl, beat until beans have broken apart and the mixture is smooth.
Beat in the sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla.
Place dry ingredients, in a medium bowl, whisk to combine.
Add to bean mixture and combine gently.
Drain raisins, and squeeze them gently to remove as much water as possible. Add the raisins and nuts if using to the batter, fold in.
Pour into 2 prepared loaf pans. Add more chopped nut for the top of the loaf, if desired. Bake 45-50 minutes, or until done in your oven. Cool in pans 10 minutes before turning out to cool completely.
Makes 2 loaves, one to enjoy and one to freeze or better yet one for a favorite son and one for a favorite daughter.
