Henry Ford, born in 1863 on a farm near Dearborn, Mich., was one of America's foremost soybean and soyfood pioneers. From the late 1920s until many years after his death in 1947, Ford's name was closely linked with soybeans, for he developed a host of new ways to use the crop industrially and was one of the most creative of the original soyfoods pioneers.

3 cups light brown sugar
2 cups butter, softened
4 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup soy flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 tablespoons plain soymilk
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups roasted unsalted soynuts, crushed
1 (24-ounce) bag semi-sweet chocolate morsels (4 cups)
