The Great Canadian Ketchup Cake – video series

One morning we were reading the back of the ketchup bottle and discovered a new recipe for Ketchup Cake!

So we did the most Canadian thing we could think of and we made it!

How will it turn out?

The Great Canadian Ketchup Cake
> based off a recipe from Kraft Canada here

2 cups flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1-1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. each ground ginger and nutmeg
1/2 cup each Heinz Tomato Ketchup and water
2 Tbsp. red food colouring
1-1/2 cups butter, softened, divided
1-1/2 cups packed dark brown sugar
2 eggs

  1. Heat oven to 350F.
  2. Spray 2 – 9 inch pans or line with parchment.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and spices.
  4. Mix ketchup, water and food colouring in separate bowl until blended.
  5. Beat 3/4 cup butter and brown sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy.
  6. Blend in eggs, 1 at a time.
  7. Add flour mixture alternately with ketchup mixture, mixing well after each addition.
  8. Pour into prepared pans.
  9. Bake 30 min. or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean.
  10. Cool cakes in pans 10 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.


Note 1: We did not have any ground ginger or nutmeg,
so we doubled up on the cinnamon.

Note 2: We omitted the red food colouring.

Note 3: We used a loaf pan, 4 x 8 inch and baked for 45 minutes.


Note 4: We also did not make icing for our trial.

Enjoy!
