For years, I made tomato soup cake. No one ever knew my mystery ingredient.
And then I found this recipe for Tomato Soup Brownies that calls for a small can of soup. They are so moist.
I always double my recipe because I don't like to throw out half a can of soup. I make one batch with nuts and a second with M&M's, chocolate chips or peanut butter chips. Use what ever your family enjoys.
