An attractive three tone savory cake, this recipe 3-color Bean Cake is a fun dinner or appetizer option when topped with salsa, guacamole, or sour cream. Savory in flavor, this cake has three distinctly colored layers made with a different variety of bean, the darkest layer being made with black beans, the middle layer being made with pinto beans, and the last layer being made with navy beans.

I love all the different colors of beans layered up. This is such a neat dish. I topped it with salsa and sour cream.
