  • 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!!

Amber, if you like unusual recipes I have a lovely chocolate yogurt cake which I will add soon!!

Sorry Amber, I should have mentioned the tin size, I use a baking tin which is approx 12 inches by 8 inches, so it makes one large cake. So I am sure if you use 2 tins it will be ok! Yes I do use plain flour, but in South Africa we also use cake flour for the recipe. Im glad you liked the cake, whenever I make it I get asked for the recipe...

great cake, i collect unusual recipes so this is a good one to add. I have already been asked to make 2 more!! I would have given 5 stars but recipe a bit vague - flour I guessed plain because of the bicarb and baking powder. Also what size tin?? It says tins but I wasn't sure what size. I used a 9in spring tin, but this took about an hour and twenty mins. I had to put silver foil around the edge to stop it burning. Should I have used 2 tins??
