I have quite a lot of green tomatoes, around 5lbs in fact. My friend joked that I would put them in a cake...so I googled, and sure enough I found green tomato cake recipes. So this is what I put together.
3 cups green tomatoes, chopped small
1 tsp salt
9 oz plain flour
5 oz sugar
5 oz butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3 oz raisins
3 oz walnuts, chopped small
Cream the sugar and butter.
Add the flour,baking soda,baking powder,cinnamon,nutmeg and salt.
Beat the eggs and add to the dry mixture.
Add the fruit and nuts, and finally the chopped tomatoes.
Line a cake tin, I used an oblong tin.
Turn the mixture into the tin and spread out.
Bake for 40-45 mins at gas mark 4, leave to cool for 10 mins then turn onto a wire rack. If you try and take it out too early it will break apart.
Next make the icing...
1/2 cup butter
Put into a pan and melt over a medium heat, continue to cook until the butter goes light brown...do watch it, you don't want it to go dark brown.
Remove from the heat and add
1 cup of icing sugar.
mix well till smooth.
Spread over the cake and leave to set.
cut into portions.
