Recipe here:www.joyofbaking.com/cakes/TomatoSpiceCake.html Stephanie Jaworski of Joyofbaking.com demonstrates how to make a Tomato Spice Cake.
This is a recipe for a Tomato Spice Cake. Also known as a Tomato Soup Cake, a Mystery Cake, or a Surprise Cake. Of course, the “mystery” of “surprise” refers to the addition of a can of tomato soup to the cake batter. This cake was first made with canned tomatoes and was considered a cake you made in the winter. Later the recipe changed from using canned tomatoes to a can of tomato soup. I know it sounds a little weird, adding tomato soup to a cake batter. But when you think about it, it isn’t so weird as tomatoes are a fruit and they are juicy sweet. While not absolutely necessary, I like to cover the top of the cake with a cream cheese frosting, as its tanginess pairs perfectly with the sweet and spicy flavor of the cake.
