    Clarification needed

    Great taste, but I would like some clarification. Are you supposed to add water (instructions on the back of the can) or just pour the condensed soup in? I mixed it with water, and it took about 20 minutes longer.

    Hi Jared, in this recipe you should add only the amount of water called for in the ingredient list within the recipe. As a rule of thumb, when using any condensed soup in a recipe you do not need to dilute the soup per the can instructions - those instruction should only be used if preparing the product to eat as soup. When used in recipes, just follow the instructions for the particular recipe using the ingredients listed. We're so glad you enjoyed the flavor of our famous Tomato Soup Spice Cake, and we hope you will make it again!

    Mother's Recipe

    Never served 12 in our house. Never lasted more than about 15 minutes after it came out of the oven IF Daddy was around. Daddy would slice Momma and us kids a slice--1/4 inch approx -- and take the rest of the cake with him out the door as he went to work.

    My dad’s favorite!

    My mom has made this cake ever since I can remember. This is the recipe she used, however, for some reason they have omitted the 1 cup raisins & 1/2 cup chopped walnuts...and the fact that you can also put it in a loaf pan & bake at the same temperature for 70 minutes...it comes out great every time. This is one tradition that I still do & have passed it to my children, & grandchildren

    The picture posted above certainly wasn't baked in a 9X13 pan

    A childhood favorite.This cake is supposed to be dense and moist. Folks ruin it by adding baking powder and eggs.

    question baking time

    The first time I made this, I baked for 40 min., but it was very dry. This time, I set the timer for 35 and took it out before it went off (when I smelled the cake) and it is nice and moist.
