Freeze warning tonight! Here is a recipe for green tomatoes just in time.

Jere Roberts hosted our garden club last week and served a delicious spiced green tomato cake. 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 9 x 13-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. .
