At first I thought: yuck…
Then I remembered my: Not your mama’s apple pie which is made with green tomatoes.
So I figured if Nate, my husband’s buddy from the Firehouse says it is delicious then who am I to judge.
I made the cake….turns out Nate’s Mom knows how to make a great cake even if it is with canned tomato soup, which I have never been a fan of, case and point: Cream of Roasted Tomato Soup.
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1-1/3 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon allspice

1/2 cup shortening
1/4 cup water

In a large bowl combine your flour, cinnamon, sugar, ground cloves, baking powder, baking soda, and allspice.
Add your tomato soup and shortening, beat until well blended. Add your water and eggs. Beat for 3 minutes. Spread into your prepared pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on rack. Cool completely before frosting.
