Bean Bread

What you need: 

1 cup boiling water
1 cup raisins
1 (15 ounce) can beans (your favorite)
2 cups sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons Ener G Egg replacement + 2 1/4 tablespoons water
1 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup walnuts, finely chopped

What you do: 

1. Add raisins to boiling water and set aside. Mash beans until as smooth as you can get them. Add sugar, egg substitute mixture, oil and vanilla.
2. Mix completely. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F, and grease and flour baking pan. Sift in dry ingredients.
3. Drain raisins and fold in with walnuts. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake about 50-60 minutes, until done. Wrap in aluminum foil and serve the nest day (for better slicing).
Source of recipe: Bean bread is as old as the hills. The American Indians enjoyed it. Each tribe had a variation. This is my recipe. It doesn't taste like beans but rather a good Boston brown bread. My friends all like it so I'll share it with you.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

is the egg replacer amount right?  I'm used to ener g in teaspoons and water in tablespoons.  When I followed your recipe, I ended up with a solid rather than a liquid.  Did I misunderstand something?

Out of curiosity, how does one usually eat bean bread? By itself, or with a topping/dip/meal? Cold, toasted? I'd really like to give this a try -- after all, I like both beans and bread -- but now quite sure how to do so properly. Thanks! :-)

I'm not the author, but I have a similar recipe, but for muffins:

Judging by the amount of sugar in this bread recipe, it's going to be a sweeter bread, like my muffins. I like the muffins toasted with Earth Balance on them. Also, I like them with some types of jam, too. Think of it like a regular quick bread, like banana nut bread. Hope you try it and like it.

Your recipe looks scrumdelicious!  I'm going to try this today.  If I'm successful with it, It goes on my Thanksgiving menu.  Thanks for sharing.

  I serve it just as ordinary table bread.  It is particularly good with apple butter!
