Tomato Soup Spice Cake

Prep: 20 minutes
Bake: 40 minutes
Cool: 20 minutes
Makes: 12 servings





2 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/3 cups sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder 1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Condensed Tomato Soup (I prefer Cambell's)
1/2 cup margarine/butter2 eggs
1/4 cup water Cream Cheese Frosting (optional)


Method:

1.Heat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 13x9-inch baking pan.

2.Stir the flour, sugar, baking powder, allspice, baking soda, cinnamon and cloves in a large bowl. Add the soup, shortening, eggs and water. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed just until blended. Increase the speed to high and beat for 4 minutes. Pour the batter into the pan.

3.Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Frost with the Cream Cheese Frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
Beat 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened, 2 tablespoons milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until the mixture is creamy. Slowly beat in 1 package (16 ounces) confectioners' sugar until the frosting is desired consistency.

Tip:I like to make this recipe without the frosting to cut back on calories and fat, and I only add 1cup of sugar as a preference. This cake stays nice and moist, and can be frozen. This cake works well with vegan substitutes!
