Charlene Patton's Spice Cake


1 can (15 oz.) soybeans

1 package (18.25 oz.) spice cake mix

Vegetable Oil, water, and eggs (amounts according to package directions)

Frosting (optional)


Preheat the oven and prepare the baking pan as called for on the cake package. Rinse the soybeans under warm water and drain well. Place drained soybeans in a blender with about one-half cup of the water called for on the cake mix package. Purée until smooth, one to two minutes. If necessary, add a little more of the water to the blender.

Add cake mix, oil, remaining water, eggs, and puréed soybeans into a large mixing bowl. Beat according to package directions. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake as specified on the package. Baking times should be approximately the same as on the package, maybe slightly longer. Remove the cake from the oven and let cool. Frost as desired. Spice Cake Makes one 9" x 13" cake (24 servings)
