Green Tomato Cake

Diana Rattray
This spiced green tomato cake is surprisingly delicious, and it's a great way to use green tomatoes before the frost gets them.


  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil or melted shortening
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup pecans or walnuts
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 1/2 cups diced green tomatoes
  • coconut (optional)


Preheat oven to 350°. In mixing bowl, beat sugar, vegetable oil or shortening, eggs and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg; slowly beat into egg mixture. Blend well. Stir in pecans, raisins and tomatoes.
Pour into greased 9x13-inch pan. Top with coconut if desired. Bake for one hour, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. .
Serves 12.

WOW, Member shearnbonner

This cake is incredible, too bad you can only get green tomatoes in the fall. I put a cream cheese icing on this cake and got raves from all my guests. It is delicious and a real keeper and one to share with friends.
