Here's a fun way to eat your soup this winter - in a cake!

Spice Cake (Tomato Soup Cake) from Carole Roberts

1 Tbsp. butter or margarine

1 cup sugar

1 can cream of tomato soup

1/2 cup milk

2 cups flour

2 tsps. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. allspice

1/2 tsp. EACH nutmeg, ground ginger, cloves, and salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the tomato soup and milk and mix thoroughly. Add the remaining ingredients and mix completely. Pour into two greased and floured 8" cake pans. Bake about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


Cream Cheese Icing

3-4 oz. cream cheese

2-3 Tbsps. butter

Confectioner's sugar (10x)



Cream the cream cheese and butter. Add confectioner's sugar gradually. Add vanilla, then milk in small quantities, stirring after each addition. Icing should be fairly stiff but spreadable.
