Green Tomato Cake With Brown Butter Icing

Green Tomato Cake With Brown Butter Icing created by Yoster

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.

    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

    I thought this was ok. It had a bit of a tang to it from the green tomatoes. In all fairness I didn't add the raisins and didn't have time to make the frosting before taking it to my parents house. The neighbors loved it though just as I made it. I made mini cakes.

    Deliciously different way to use up my garden tomatoes that never ripened. The only thing I did different was add a little vanilla to both the cake and frosting, and used regular raisins because that's all I had. Yummy- and the frosting is terrific!
