Green Tomato Cake

Green Tomato Cake

Introduction

A moist spicy cake...a good way to use some of those extra green tomatoes before frost hits. Sprinkle the finished cake with confectioners' sugar or a nice dollop of vanilla fat free yogurt. This can be made with or without the nuts, either way its very yummy. A moist spicy cake...a good way to use some of those extra green tomatoes before frost hits.

    I've revamped it a bit and it still tastes just as good to me so please try the reduction in sugar method i have jut submitted and the change in butter. I am glad you enjoyed it.
