I don't know about Tomato Soup Cake;). That just doesn't sound appetizing.

i made that cake back in the year 2004 when i found its recipe on an old number of the Readerville magazine. I made it as i was damn curious to taste the same flavour Sylvia tasted many many years before...and...i must admit it..well no..the cake, as Jess himself was right saying, is in fact not that appetizing. it tastes really bizarre. but at least my curiosity was fed ;)

from that day i prefer to keep on reading Sylvia..not making her ;)

goodnight,
