Bloody Maria -Tomato Soup- Cupcakes

Tomato soup cake showed up in classic cookbooks in the 1940’s and has become more and more popular as the decades went along.  

During times of scarce ingredients, families were forced to be creative!  There are even images where this cake was baked inside a soup can! 

It’s also known as Mystery Cake and has had variations that include dried fruit and nuts baked in. Today, many of us have had a similar carrot spiced cake, and now can enjoy a different twist on this moist seasoned cake. 

Mix It Up by adding Bloody Maria to bring this recipe into the 21st Century! 

Instead of simply using a can of condensed tomato soup we wanted to challenge our test kitchen and make Bloody Maria Tomato {Soup} cake.  What a surprise we had!  Not only does adding our all natural mix give you more nutrients but the spicesn including New Mexico Hatch Green Chile, make a fabulous cake! 

When you want a sweet, spicy and easy cake mix, this is your new (or old) go-to!!  What makes it even better is the ability to top with simply a light dusting of powdered sugar or better yet with cinnamon & sugar, giving it a familiar churro flare.
