My Grandmother made this cake when I was a kid in the 50s and it remains a favourite! She added raisins which made it that much better. When I worked in the north in a bush camp, I didn't have tomato soup, so I made it from a mixture of ketchup and canned milk.. Didn't have any complaints and got orders for more... Love it !!!!

I first got this recipe about 25 years ago from friend, a Massachusetts native, who kept talking about it. I didn't believe that it could be good. After a trip home, she brought me a calendar that had recipes on it - there was the tomato soup cake for real!! It's delicious - not too sweet or rich. Reminds me of various spice cakes or carrot cake. Makes a nice snack with coffee. Some people frost or glaze but I prefer it plain. I was looking for a Tomato Florentine Soup recipe when I stumbled on this today. Think I'll make it for Thanksgiving.
