    Chicagopm's Note:

    I thought that this was an interesting use of green tomatoes. The cake is rich made as directed, but I think that it could be lightened easily.

      GOODNESS GRACIOUS HEAVENLY DAYS!!! Who KNEW that a cake made with green tomatoes could be so good. This is almost like a spice cake with "lagniappe". The raisins, tomatoes and walnuts give this a wonderful texture and flavor. The consistency is dense and the icing is to die for. I had seen recipes for this cake but never tried it until this past weekend. IT IS A KEEPER!!! Thanks for posting this great recipe... I REALLY LOVED IT and if I could give it more stars, I would.

      This cake is fantastic. I messed up and forgot to add the baking powder so it did not rise like it should have but it still gets five stars from me. I am definitely not going to short it a rating because of a mistake I made. This is a great way to use green tomatoes. I will most definitely be making this cake again. This time, with the baking powder. :P
