We loved this bread ! Since my husband is diabetic I did substitute 1 cup of Splenda for the sugar and it turned out great. Thanks for a unique way to use green tomatoes before the frost hits !
Amazing bread! Very tasty, perfect mix of ingredients :) Didn't have pecans, but I can't wait to enjoy another loaf with them included. Lovely to be able to put my green tomatoes from this fall to use and brush up on my baking skills! I can't wait to see the perplexed yet delightful looks on my parents' faces when they taste this bread!
Oh my goodness. I made this last fall when we had an abundance of green tomatoes and this is delicious. I made one batch, and we ate the first loaf within minutes! So I ended up making 3 or 4 more batches (I don't remember) and stuck them in the freezer. So good. I was skeptical but no worries. thank you for sharing something I would have never thought of.
