This recipe, now over 50 years old was sent to me from a viewer who said it had been a favourite in her kids lunch boxes . Canned tomato soup is really quite sweet, and indeed a tomatoes are a fruit – so using canned soup as a basis for a fruit cake isn’t really all that odd. It’s delicious – do give it a go.
