  1. This is outstanding!!!! This is now our definite go to chocolate cake!!! Super moist, super chocolatey and you'd never know the soup is there, hubby never knew and he loved it, baby girl ate it all up. Definitely satisfies the most choccolatiest craving, thank you for sharing!!
  2. Wow! The tomato soup actually blends right in! You can't even tell it's there and you're just left with an incredibly moist and delicious chocolate cake! I'm not a huge chocolate cake fan, but even I thought this was pretty good. Everyone else in the family absolutely LOVED it though, and we didn't even bother using any frosting! Great concept, great result, great recipe! Thanks!
  3. What can I say!!! SENSATIONAL, I will never make any other cake now, thank you so much for this recipe. The only thing I did differently was to make it in large patty cake cases.
  4. Great flavor and texture. I reduced the sugar by 20%. Didn’t seem to impact flavor. I used 2T oil and 6T applesauce to reduce calories. Awesond
  5. This cake is the best chocolate cake I have ever had. We loved it! I followed the recipe exactly. Just baked it as a layer cake in two 9 inch rounds and reduced cooking time to about 28 minutes. AWESOME!!!!!


I love to cook. I also love to garden, both vegetables and flowers are my passion. I enjoy the great out doors, also, looking for new and interesting recipes to make for my family. Baking in the cooler fall and winter months fills the home with such wonderful aromas, plus living in the Great Lakes State, sometimes you do not see the sun for weeks. So filling the home with inviting aromas with fresh baked breads, cakes, cookies or hearty stews and soups is a must to lift the spirits! Canning is another one of my passions. I love the taste of "Good " home canned produce, expecially when it comes out of my garden! The produce truly is a gift From God, and I am very thankful for it! Hobbies: I live on a mini farm, raising Chickens and turkeys. I also have 5 German Shorthaired Pointer dogs that take up a lot of my time. I also enjoy playing cards and get togethes with family and friends. Health: I'm always looking and researching on what things makes us healthy. I really enjoying researching on line different new products for good health. Somethings I order, just don't pan out, while other, have really helped my health improve. I always try to go the natural way. I would love to some day buy all organic cotton bedding, cloths, but that can be very expensive. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <a href="" target="_blank"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <a href= title='Myspace Graphics'><img src= width=349 height=357 alt='myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics' border=0></a> My Summer gardens! <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="" height="360" width="480"></embed><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" style="border-width: 0;" vspace="1"></a>
