Spiced Tomato Soup Cancakes

This image courtesy of

These whimsical mini cakes are made with tomato soup, which may sound a little weird to you, but truly makes for one of the moistest cake recipes out there. Cute and delicious, the Spiced Tomato Soup Cancakes are then topped with an orange icing that brings it all together. Great to bring to parties or just to serve to your family so everyone has their individual mini cake, these are incredibly delicious.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is the most unique recipe I have ever seen! I'm agreeing with the comments and thinking that is more of a dessert than anything else. I am so curious about the flavors and when would be an appropriate season to serve this cake. Perhaps, winter because of the soup or spring because of the tomato flavor? Any suggestions?

I don't know. Based on the other comments, it is worth a try. The tomato soup is unconventional. Does the tomato soup add any sweetness. From the other spices it seems like it would be sweet, but there is no sugar except for in the glaze. Caramel icing sounds like it would be good.

My mother used to make this and I have made it. We did not use the cans, just regular pans. The cake is very moist and you cannot tell that it has tomato soup in it. I think we used caramel icing.

I was just wondering if we could use regular cake pans ...what size would be right for this? 9" X 9" or 9" X 13"?

orange grind? never heard of that before. how full should you fill the cans?

I remember making pumkin bread in a can years ago, do you have a recipe?

One of the easiest and best pumpkin bread recipes I ever got is: 1 cake mix (carrot, butter pecan or caramel are my faves) 1 can solid pumpkin Mix together, stirring well, and bake as usual. I make loaf bread, and muffins. All come out amazingly moist and delish!

If you get the recipe for pumpkin bread in a can will you please sent it to me. thanks

It's creative, but not sure why Recipe Lion calls it an appetizer, and the fact it takes soup is why I'm not sure if it is an appetizer or a dessert. I wish someone would tell me, for certain which it is! I'd like to make it, and I'd like to be able to tell friends and family, which one it is.

Creative! But my first thought or reaction is, "is this an appetizer or a dessert?". The fact it takes soup is why I'm uncertain.

I have no idea why RL calls it an appetizer. That is probably a mistake. I am going to go out on a limb here and venture to call it a dessert since it is cake and it has loads of sugar in both the batter and the icing. I dont think it matters that it has tomatoe soup in it. Guess it all depends on whether you want to call a tomatoe a veggie or a fruit?
