Tomato Soup Spice Cake or Husband Cake


Talk about firing me - I came across this photo and realized that I planned to post this recipe over a year ago!

This recipe is known by two different names. Tomato Soup Spice Cake, and Husband Cake. Many thanks to my friend Darlene who handed me down this recipe. She received it from her mother, who received it from her mother. That said, this recipe is egg free, and can be prepared entirely from food storage ingredients!

¾ c. shortening
1 ½ c. sugar
1 c. tomato soup
¾ c. water
1 t. soda
3 c. flour
¾ t. salt
1 T. baking powder
1 ½ t. cinnamon
1 t. cloves
½ t. nutmeg
1 ½ c. raisins
1 ½ c. chopped nuts

In a mixing bowl combine shortening, soup, and water together. In a separate bowl sift together dry ingredients and then add to the shortening mixture. Stir in nuts and raisins. Bake in a greased and floured tube pan at 350* for approximately an hour.

Once cooled, top with Fondant Cheese Frosting
Garnish with red and green maraschino cherries for a festive Christmas cake.
