TOMATO SOUP CAKE

2 cups sifted flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
2 tsp cocoa
2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients above in large bowl, then add:

1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 cups tomato soup, (undiluted)

Mix well and add:

1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins

Blend all together, pour in greased baking pans.
Bake at 350 degrees 45 minutes or until toothpick
inserted in middle comes out clean.

**Texture of cake is moister if mixed with wooden
spoon or with whisk.

Frost with a cream cheese frosting. This is a rich spice type cake and wonderful with a cup of steaming coffee!!

Chocolate Tomato Soup Cake

I never thought of chocolate with tomato soup until I had ran across this recipe. It is the chocolate version of the cake I posted earlier. I have tried discount and store brands of tomato soup but find that name brand soups are usually better and make the cake moist.

CHOCOLATE TOMATO SOUP CAKE

1/2 cup real butter, softened
1 1/3 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup water
1 can (10 3/4oz) tomato soup
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 350 deg.. Grease & flour A 9"x13" pan or a bundt pan. Cream together butter & sugar. Add eggs, & beat until fluffy. Whisk together dry ingredients. Mix tomato soup and water. Add dry ingredients and soup mixture alternately to creamed mixture. Fold in nuts. Pour into pan & bake 30 min. in 9x13" pan, or 40 min. in bundt pan.

I use this cream cheese glaze on the bundt cake:

Cream Cheese Glaze

2 Tbsp. real butter, softened
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla

Mix until smooth, & spread on cake when just slightly warm.
