"This is a moist, spice-type cake...a good way to use some of those extra green tomatoes before frost hits."
INGREDIENTS:
4 cups chopped green tomatoes
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
DIRECTIONS:
1.Place chopped tomatoes in a bowl and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon salt. Let stand 10 minutes. Place in a colander, rinse with cold water and drain.
2.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch baking pan.
3.Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and beat until creamy.
4.Sift together flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, soda and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add raisins and nuts to dry mixture; add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Dough will be very stiff. Mix well.
5.Add drained tomatoes and mix well. Pour into the prepared 9 x 13 inch pan.
6.Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean.

Thanks so much for posting this recipe, Toni. I'd heard of green tomato chutney, but not a cake recipe......... We are at the stage of beginning to wonder what we could do with a large number of tomatoes which will probably not ripen.
It is fun to see what recipes there are out there.

The Look

Anyone who thinks cats can't learn things hasn't lived with one. It took Theo maybe a month into his diet to figure out that I can...
