Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cloves and cinnamon. In a large bowl, whisk together the soup and butter until well combined. Stir in the eggs and 1/2 cup water. Fold in the flour mixture to the tomato soup mixture just until combined.
In a 12-cup muffin tin fitted with paper liners, divide the batter. Bake until the cakes test clean when pierced with a toothpick, about 18 minutes.
