Oh wow, this is a really, really good cake recipe! It is easy and rather quick to throw together and the cake tastes sooooo yummy! It is moist, with a nice crust on top and a fruity flavour. The tomato doesnt come through at all, only the colour of the cake makes it guessable that there is some tomato in it.
I used both raisins and chocolate in the form of chocolate covered raisins and they added a nice flavour to the cake. As I dont like my baked things to be too sweet I reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup and that was just perfect.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this great recipe with us, NurseJaney!
Ill surely make it again as everyone just loved it!

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC recipe, TRUE!<br/>Love recipes that have family history too!<br/>Let me tell you this cake did not last,<br/>I am certainly glad this recipe of NurseJaney's, I did not pass!<br/>Made for the AUS/NX May Recipe Swap<br/>WHOO HOO!
This is really nice, is really moist and keeps well for quite a few days...it is very sweet though..I cut the sugar to 3/4 cup and would cut it even more next time..I love the fact that this has no eggs as my little one is allergic to egg white so he can still have this as a treat. Thanks for posting!
