  1. Very good, Nice and moist! I iced it with "allspice cream cheese frosting #26442"
  2. 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 !!!!

  3. 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.


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
