Number of Servings: 24


    4 cups chopped green tomatoes
    1 tablespoon salt
    1/2 cup butter (I substitute unsweetened applesauce)
    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 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a bundt cake pan OR a 9x13 inch baking pan.

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.

Combine butter (or applesauce) and sugar. Add eggs and beat until creamy.

Sift together flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, soda and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add raisins and to dry mixture; add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Dough will be very stiff. Mix well.

Add drained tomatoes and mix well. Pour into the prepared pan.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean.

Cool on rack in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely.

    Very good - I used chopped green tomatoes from freezer - thawed and reserved the liquid - also am gluten free so changed your 2 cup flour to one cup tapioca flour, 1/3 cup corn starch and 2/3 cup flax meal with no other nuts and 1.5 tsp quar gum. Any premixed all-purpose-Gluten-free flour would do. - 1/9/12

  • I used applesauce instead of butter as it seemed the recipe wanted it that way. Maybe it would have been better if I'd chopped the tomatoes extremely small in a food processor. - 10/3/11

  • The directions say to combine applesauce and sugar but there is no applesauce listed in ingredients. - 9/23/11
