Tomato soup savory cake

Since I started baking I wanted to put up some savory stuff say a savory muffin my dear father who is a diabetic. But never tried any till this date. When seeing a tamato soup cupcake at vanilagarlic I was naturally brought towards it but bit down to find it a sweet stuff. But that combination gave me the idea for the following cake which was turned to be really good. Afterall appa like it very much!


For the thick tomato soup :
2 medium sized tomatoes
1/2 of a big onion
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Salt as required

Steam the above in a pressure cooker. Let it cool. Grind it in a mixie with salt to taste and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Use 1 cup of the ground pulp.
For the cake:
1 cup all purpose flour
1 egg slightly beaten
1.5 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup of tomato soup
1 T chopped coriander leaves
1 T chopped mint leaves
2 T buttter melted

Sieve the flour and baking powder. Add the egg and the soup and mix until incorporated. Add the melted butter, chopped leaves and mix. Pour the mix into a buttered pan and bake till done in a preheated oven. Transfer it to a rack and let it cool. Serve them warm topped with butter and few mint leaves.

This cake did not rise well as I found it can be baked in a jelly roll pan too. In that case sprinkle the top with grated cheese and warm it in the oven just before serving for a richer taste.

    Nice idea to make a savoury cake……can you tell me what temp you preheated the oven to??? and how long did you bake it???

  5. A lovely idea. I was reminded of a friend in college who used to make a tomato cake which was sweet. I don’t know how she did it or where she is now.
    Perhaps the cake might rise if you add baking powder as for other cakes?
    By the way, this is my first time here.
    A Happy New Year, too.
