This is a moist, spice-type cake which uses green tomatoes. Sprinkle the finished cake with icing sugar or ice with cream cheese icing.
This is an amazing, yummy and simple cake to make! I have surprised friends and family with this and NO ONE has guessed it has green tomatoes in it :-) The changes I made were 1) use half the amount of sugar 2) replaced butter with oil 3) I don't use walnuts due to allergies, so sprinkled the top of the cake with pumpkin seeds - nice and crunchy. 4) I mixed the tomatoes, oil, sugar, eggs and raisins together, then folded in the sifted the dry ingredients, much easier 5) And preparing the tomatoes, I blended them in the food processor then drained them in a colander, then squeezed any excess liquid out (froze what I didn't use) - 25 Apr 2012
This Green tomato cake is one of the tastiest moist cakes I've ever made . A great way of using a kg of green tomatoes when was too cold for them to ripen Thanks for this recipe - 14 Jul 2014
Good way of getting use out of green tomatoes. I did adjust the sugar back a bit and I would not use the salt in the dry ingredient mix as I think plenty of salt taste was still with my tomatoes after rinsing. Thanks for a lovely cake. - 13 Mar 2016
