Recipe : Tomato Soup Cake

Keeping with the theme of grandparents' recipes... here's one from my great-grandmother:

Tomato Soup Cake

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1 can tomato soup
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp baking soda

1/2 lb seedless raisins + 1/2 cup cut-up dates (may also be made with just dates, or may add chopped pecans or walnuts)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Stir all ingredients in a large bowl.  Mix well.  Add fruit and stir evenly.  Bake about one hour.
Cool on rack until completely cold, then wrap and store for a day or two, or refrigerate for a week, before cutting.    Keeps well.
