My Grandma's Tomato Soup Cake

Marsha Gardner


My grandmother was a wonderful cook and baker. She worked full time and still had a full meal on the table every night. On Saturdays she baked kuchen for the week.

She loved to cook with tomato soup and I have many of her recipes with this favorite ingredient of hers.
