5 STARS, BUT ONLY WITH THESE ALTERATIONS: The point of bean cake is our health, so I made the following changes. Reduce sugar from 2 cups to 1 1/2 cups. Substute most of the oil for applesauce, (I used 1/4 cup oil and 3/4 cup applesauce). To eliminate even more sugar (and the fat from the pork), I used a 16 oz. jar of home-canned black beans in place of the baked beans with pork. To hide the beans, I substituted 3 Tbsp. cocoa powder for the 1 teaspoon cinnamon. I also have a wheat grinder, so I ground fresh whole wheat flour and substituted it for the white flour. I left out the raisins. With these changes, you can transform this recipe into a DELICIOUS, HEALTHY CHOCOLATE BLACK BEAN CAKE. Yum!
