Green Tomato Cake With Icing

Green Tomato Cake With Icing

By October 4, 2012

A friend from church made this and it was so GOOD. Don't let the name fool you. it reminds me of carrot cake. She shared the recipe, which I misplaced and so I looked at few and came up with the one below. I just worked on the icing until I thought it was a good flavor for the cake.

  • Prep Time : 30 minutes
  • Cook Time : 60 minutes



  • I used more than this but this cake was a wonderful way to get one last dish out of our quickly fading garden. Dice the tomatoes (I put them in my food processor). Sprinkle with 1 tsp salt and let sit for ten minutes. After ten minutes rinse well and strain.
  • Coat a 9x13 with butter and rub with flour. Preheat oven to 350
  • Mix banana, softened butter and sugar together. I used my stand mixer.
  • In a separate bowl mix flour, 1/4 tsp salt, cinnamon and baking soda with a fork. Then add raisins to this.
  • In the bowl with the banana mixture add the green tomatoes and flour mixture.

I had two super cute helpers that night! They make the counter a little messy but it is totally worth it because they love helping and are more likely to eat the food they help with.

  • Once the mixture is mixed well it will be thick.
  • Pour in baking dish.
  • While the cake is baking put all ingredients for icing together and blend/mix well. Make sure the cream cheese is softened. I didn't wait long enough.
  • While cake is still warm pour icing over the top. As you can see I didn't let my cream cheese get soft enough and so it was a little lumpy at first.
