Green Tomato Cake

I made this last year with green tomatoes from my CSA share.  It was divine.  I based it off a recipe I found online, but made several modifications.


  • 2 1/4 Cups Sugar
  • 1 Cup Melted Butter
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla
  • 3 Cups Flour
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tsp Nutmeg
  • Dash Cloves
  • 1 Cup Almonds (or walnuts)
  • 1 Cup Orange Cranberries (from Trader Joes)
  • 2 1/2 Cups Green Tomatoes (diced)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.
  2. Beat together the sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla.
  3. Beat in the dry ingredients.
  4. Stir in the nuts, tomatoes and orange cranberries.
  5. Bake in a 9 x 13 pan for 60 minutes.
  6. Top with cream cheese frosting with a dash of cinnamon in it.
