I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the lookout for the perfect chocolate fudge cake recipe. Boxed mixes usually turn out just fine, but there’s no beating the satisfaction of making a delicious cake from scratch.

In the pursuit of awesome chocolate cake, there’s no recipe too unusual or outlandish. In the past, we’ve tried everything from traditional cookbook techniques to a unique recipe that includes red wine.

The latest recipe we have our eye on is even more nontraditional. Instead of classic ingredients, this tasty chocolate fudge cake calls for an old-fashioned can of tomato soup!

We love tomato soup as part of a savory light lunch, but never thought of it as a key ingredient in a sweet dessert… until now!

As it turns out, we’ve all been selling tomato soup short; this powerhouse meal can add creamy richness to your favorite cake batter.
