If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Tomato Cake (untested)

This recipe is written in Grammy's handwriting and is attributed to Kennedy.

Ingredients for cake:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup nuts
  • 1 tablespoon lemon skin
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can Campbell's tomato soup
Ingredients for filling:
  • 1 package Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon cream (if desired)
Instructions for cake (incomplete):
  1. Sift all dry ingredients together
  2. Add raisins and nuts
  3. Add soup last
Instructions for filling:
  1. Mash cream cheese well
  2. Add powdered sugar and vanilla
  3. If too thick, add cream
There are no instructions for baking temperature or time. Also, I'm curious if the filling is supposed to be used as frosting or if another frosting is supposed to be used.
