Vendor Voices: Victoria vendor Evelyn Baron is here to share another delicious recipe—tomato soup cake
Out of the recipe book
Here I am to spice it up with a tomato soup cake recipe, which I acquired many years ago from a newspaper in a northern town of Prince George where I once lived.
I found it to be on the spicy side, but it’s good. It’s very inexpensive and I had a can of tomato soup around.
So here it is and I’d like to share it with you! I hope you like it!
