  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 can Tomato Soup (I used Heinz) 420g
  • 2 teaspoons Bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 cups of Raisins
  • 3 cups Flour
  • For the frosting:
  • 1 cup Icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon cream or 1/2 teaspoon milk
  • 90g Cream Cheese at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup chopped Walnuts (optional)


    1. Using an electric mixer, in a bowl beat sugar and butter well, add eggs and continue beating for another minute.
    2. Now mix in all other ingredients one at a time.
    3. Pour mixture into well greased cake tins, and bake at 180 deg C or 350 deg F, for 30-45 minutes. When a sharp knife is inserted into the cake, it should come out clean.
    4. Allow to cool on wire rack.
    5. Mix all ingredients for frosting together, spread over cake and sprinkle with chopped walnuts. Enjoy!!

Can we have the cup size converted to a weight, please? I've had this problem before, where there is no such thing as one single cup size, so how is everyone managing? (Sorry, I should have entered this as a Question, not a Comment, but the Questions section doesn't seem to work)

I would like to know how much this would rise. I would like to make it in a loaf tin so that I can slice it and put into a packed lunch.

I cooked this cake in the late 70's when working as a cookery teacher in schools. The kids thought I was mad until they tasted it - then they all wanted to make it.

I'd love to make this cake but not sure about measurement. What's 6 tablespoons and 3 cups in grams or ounces? Thanks

I tried this cake and everyone thought it was really light and moist, most enjoyable and you should have seen the grandsons face, it was a picture.

It is really really good! Sort if like a spicy carrot cake. I dont use cup measurements but i just used an online converter to change everything in to grams and it turned out fine. My family are eating their cake and their words now! :)

Several people have asked in the Comments for a conversion for the cup measurements - can we have an answer please?
15th Feb, 2015
Why has nobody been able to come back with conversion weights for the cup measurements, please?
