Yes, this cake is made with a can of Campbell’s Tomato Soup.

No, I do not know what they were thinking.

From Wonderful Ways With Soups from Campbell’s, 1958

    How crazy is that! Mike loves pineapple upside down cake, but I don’t know how he would feel about this?!?

    This is hilarious. I just bought a February 1953 “Woman’s Home Companion” magazine today, and there were lots of ads and recipes using Campbells soups as well as canned pineapple! MUST TRY THIS!
