Oh yes, you read that right— Tomato Soup Cupcake. Some of you maybe familiar with this retro cupcake, but if you are like me, by that I mean: Asian, obsessive about all the wrong things, born in the 70’s with main-stream cultural reference points starting in the 90’s (so I’m a late bloomer in this area, my parents were strict), these might be totally novel to you.
Okay, you can be minus all that and still have it be novel to you. And if they are, you have to admit your curiousity is peaked.
Mine certainly was when The Kitchn asked me to develop a recipe for this retro dessert. You know me, I love a good challenge. Aside from that I was so curious.
Hit the jump here to find the surprising result and to see how that iconic can of soup produces a deliciously sweet and tender cupcake.
