"Souper" Spice Cake

(10 Votes)
45 Min

Spices were so important in "the olden days" that they were used for trading. Sure, they're still important today, but for their flavor more than their value. So when you're sinking your teeth into this dessert delight, think about how much each bite of this spice cake might have been worth years ago!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 can (10 ounces) condensed tomato soup
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F.

  2. Grease and flour two 8-inch cake pans or one 9" x 13" baking dish.

  3. Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend on low speed for about 1 minute. Blend on high for about 4 minutes, until well mixed.

  4. Pour the batter evenly into the cake pan(s) and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool before frosting and layering. If frosted, store cake in the refrigerator.

This is an amazing cake,my mum used to make it all the time,you can't taste the tomato soup.She would make a cream cheese icing,or orange icing that has a bit of orange juice and rind,particularly good with orange icing

I made this cake many times in my younger years. I lived in Reynoldsburg, OH at the time and we had the Tomato Fesitival to celebrate Reynoldsburg as the birthplace of the modern tomato. I won a blue ribbon one year. It is a great spice cake recipe and very moist. I liked using my bundt cake pan. Try it and you'll love it.


In a bundt pan, we would suggest 35 to 45 minutes. However, like all cakes, bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Thank you!

Don't shout, please?

I have a question. Does this cake taste like a spice cake or can you taste the tomato once the cake is baked.

Great question! This cake has the flavor of a spice cake. You can not taste the tomato soup, it just makes the cake moist and delicious. Thank you!


My grandmother put raisins in the batter. A fav that I miss.

I want to try this with Apples. I am looking for a "dark" Apple cake with a hint of chocolate anyone seen one?

Excellent old fashioned cake ..Still tops today I like to simmer a cup of raisins in water till plump then add over layer of frosting between layers also add cooled raisin water for part of liquid So good!
