The soup is on the stove and the cake is in the oven!

4 tsp molasses or brown sugar
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
¾ tsp salt
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp each black pepper & cumin

In a Dutch oven or large soup kettle, cook ground beef and onion until meat is well-browned; drain. Add remaining ingredients, smashing tomatoes with your hands. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes. Serve with a green salad and cornbread & butter.
