Tomato Soup Cake - Campbells....

found this recipe years ago in my NY Cookbook... made it and liked it very very much... it is a retro recipe and has a old fashioned charm that i like...
Not made very often in this house due to the fact that condensed tomato soup is not available in Germany... only in special stores that carry american products..

1/2 c. shortening or butter
1 c. sugar
1 can condensed tomato soup
1/2 t. baking soda
2 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. nutmeg
1 t. cloves
1 c. raisins or dates
1 c. roasted walnuts

4 oz. cream cheese
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla

Cream shortening and sugar. Add soup and baking soda, beating well. Sift dry ingredients together and beat into wet mixture. Pour into a 9×13 inch greased and floured pan.
Bake at 350° for 45 minutes.

In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Add milk as needed to make frosting spreadable.
