Green Tomato Spice Cake


Yep, you read that right...Green Tomato Spice Cake!! :)

My blogging buddy, Teresa at Eden Hills posted the recipe recently for this cake and I just had to try it. Wow, I'm sooo glad I did and so is Jerry!! He was pretty skeptical when I told him I was going to make a cake with green tomatoes but once he tried it, he ate almost the whole cake! He even had some for breakfast this morning! LOL!!

This is a great way to use up the last of the green tomatoes from the garden and something different than green tomato relish. I highly recommend this cake and her Peach Pie Cake, if you haven't already tried it. Thanks for the great recipes Teresa! :)

Linking up with The Country Homemaker HopRural Thursday and Food Friday.

based on jerry's reaction, this is one use of green tomatoes (or tomatoes in general) that i'd like. :)

This sounds very intriguing! Looks delicious in the photo, so I'll have to try it out.

Oh, that looks really good - could sure use a piece right now for an afternoon treat! We have plenty of green tomatoes that I was going to pickle but your cake sounds much better!

This sounds like a interesting cake. It definitely LOOKS like the sort of thing i like....worth a try i think.
We have someone called Zumbo here in Sydney who makes amazing cakes out of unexpected ingredients...and unexpected combinations. His cakes also look like a work of art.

I usually let mine ripen on the counter, but I may try that! With some cream cheese frosting? :)

No way! So, I can make *cake* with all those unripened tomatoes I just trucked in?! This is awesome.

I hardly even have green tomatoes left that worms did not get to but I'd like to try this if I find enough! I love a good spice cake.

I would totally try this! I made a chocolate cake once that had tomato sauce in it - it was great!

Glad you enjoyed it. If I can make a cake from something, I'm definitely going to! It's my weakness.

okay now - I just will be doing this believe - My tomatoes plants are still producing and there is just not enough sun to turn them ripe red!

alissa apel said...

I'd try it! I'll try anything that has the word, "Cake" in it. :)

Oh, YUM! I have to try this...if I ever get any tomatoes to use! It looks so delicious. Will check out both her recipes.

I had to quit making Cowboy Cookies
for a while...I couldn't stop eating them! :-)

Ruth said...

This looks delicious!...time for dinner;)

Joan said...

Lol The title did throw me a bit.
It sure does look good though!

I just made this. It is a great cake! Yours looks more dense than mine. Mine looks more cakey like Eden Hills. It doesn’t taste like a green tomato when cooked, but the flavor goes well with the spices and the taste lends itself very well to the sweetness of the cream cheese frosting. Yummy! Thanks for sharing this!

Nancy Claeys said...

Such a pretty cake and who would guess what you used to make it?

Thanks so much for sharing at Rural Thursdays, Candy.

Heidi said...

My mouth is watering Candy. Thanks for sharing another great green tomato recipe. I got the base for my green tomato enchilada sauce from one of your posts last year... Thanks for always being an inspiration in the kitchen.

Kateri said...

I made another batch of muffins based on this recipe today and chopped up and froze some of my smaller green tomatoes that I didn't think would ripen for use later this winter. :)
