“I have never seen a Pork N Beans Cake recipe. I got this from my late Uncle and it tastes like a Spice Cake when completed. I had my doubts, but it is a very good and great cake to fool people with when they try it. Very easy to make great for company functions.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together.
  3. Combine the above mixture with eggs, sugar, and oil in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.
  5. Mash drained beans and pineapple to the mixture. You could use a blender for this part and probably would be better to get a smooth bean mixture.
  6. Bake 30-35 minutes until toothpick test comes out clean.
  7. Cool for 25 minutes.
  8. Topping:
  9. Mix all ingredients except 1/2 of the pecans; spread between layers, or if a bundt cake style, over the whole thing.
  10. Once icing on top, sprinkle remaining pecans.
