I found this great recipe for Tomato Soup Chocolate Cake. The title intrigued me, TOMATO SOUP in cake!!! So I made it today for my family get together. It was really good!!! And no, you can't taste the tomato soup! The cake is really moist and OH so good.
I got the recipe from a book I read a few weeks ago. It is "Deep Dish" by Mary Kay Andrews. By the way it's a great book!! Anyway this recipe was in the book story line. They put the recipe in the back of the book so thought I would try it. The kids eating the cake are my Great Nephew David and Great Niece Kighley.


1/2 C. Butter
1 1/2 C. Sugar
2 Eggs
2 C. Flour
1/2 C. Cocoa
1 T. Baking Powder
1 teas. Baking Soda
1/4 C. Warm Water
1 Can (10 3/4 oz.) Tomato Soup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour a 9 X 13 inch baking pan.
In a large mixing bowl cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, beating until fluffy.
In a small bowl mix together dry ingredients. In a small bowl mix tomato soup and water together.
Add dry and wet ingredients alternately to the butter/sugar bowl. Bake 30 minutes and let
cool before frosting.


  1. sounds fascinating. :O tomato soup in a chocolate cake... quite a combination... :O

  2. Well, that's different! I see the kids like it. Really moist with tomatoes.

  3. I forget which book it is by Mary Kay Andrews but it has a chicken salad recipe that is to die for. I make it all the time and people constantly ask me for the recipe. It's on her website.


Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!!
