Tomato Soup Cake

Personal Note –  This recipe is something my mom baked forever. I know, I know – tomato soup is an odd ingredient for a cake. But try it! Sort of spicy and so yummy. People will never guess what the main ingredient is.

  • 300g can condensed tomato soup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 ½ cups self-raising flour
  • 1 cup raisins


  • 100g cream cheese, softened
  • 20g butter, softened
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cup icing sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 165 degrees Celsius.
  2. Combine the tomato soup and baking soda in a bowl, and let it stand.
  3. Cream sugar, egg, butter, cinnamon, and cloves. Mix in tomato soup and soda mixture, and then flour. Stir in the raisins, and pour the batter into a greased baking dish (10 inch square cake).
  4. Bake for 1 hour, or until done. Cool the cake, and top with cream cheese icing.
  5. To prepare cream cheese frosting, place cheese, butter and vanilla in a bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat until pale. Gradually add icing sugar mixture, beating until combined.
