When I was young, my mom used to make this tomato soup cake for dessert. The funny thing is, my Mom used to tell me and my younger brother that it was a “spice cake”. She did this because there was no way we would eat anything with tomato in it.
The funny thing is this cake does indeed taste like a spice cake. If I recall correctly, it wasn't until I was an adult before she confessed and told me that it was a tomato soup cake and not spice cake.
Personally, I like this cake recipe with raisins, but I have some family members that don't like raisins so on some occasions I leave them out.
You can also substitute the raisins with chopped dates. No matter what you decide, this tomato soup cake is absolutely delicious!!
I prefer to eat this cake without frosting, but if you are the frosting type, I would recommend a nice buttercream or cream cheese frosting.
