Recipe by Louise in Montreal
Surprizing, my grandmother turned everything that grew in her garden into cakes. This is one of her recipes and you will just love it since it will allow you to transform your green tomatoes in something else than green ketchup!! The cake by itself is not so sweet; the icing makes it just right.

- 2 cups sugar
- 3 eggs
- 3 cups all-purpose flour

- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 cups green tomatoes, seeded and cut into small pieces
