Certainly not "Gourmet" fare, but a really Q&E great "down-home" comfort dessert. Plus it's fun to play "guess the mystery ingredient". I have used either a confectioners sugar or a cream cheee frosting..both are good. Servings depend on how large you cut the bars
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can tomato soup
- 5 3⁄8 ounces cans water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons allspice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- Mix all ingredients and pour into a greased and floured 16 x 20-inch pan.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes.
Something different...I love it!! Very nice taste and texture. Wonderful array of spices. The only thing I did differently was to add some chopped walnuts (about 1/2 cup)...oh, and my pan was also like 11x7 - so baking was a bit longer. To me they were somewhat reminiscent of a pumpkin cake (which I adore)...I was only able to share "the secret ingredient" with my husband (who nothing surprises) so I can not wait to make them again for others. YUMMY... Tomato soup!? :) (LOL)...dare I say it(???)..."UM-UM GOOD"!!! :)
My French class were surprised that they enjoyed this. I used 1/4 c less sugar and added 1/4 t nutmeg because I didn't have any ginger. Also had to use an 11x7, which took 25 min. Very easy and delicious, and does not require icing.
