This is an excellent recipe; a great way to use green tomatoes! The batter is very thick, but the bread is light and very flavorful. Instead of disparing over tomatoes that don't ripen, I will be looking forward to them. Thanks Bergy.

This was great! I managed to break this down to just one loaf without much difficulty. The amount for vanilla was not listed, but I added 1 teaspoon for the one loaf and 3 for the 3 loaves. They raved about this at work, the neighbors loved it and even my husband liked it. I have some frozen in the freezer (made mini loaves) Thanks for the recipe!

Every one loved this !! Very flavorful and spicy. I did replace the oil with light sour cream and applesauce to lighten it a bit and was wonderful. Thank you !!
