When my wife told me she was going to make a green tomato cake from a Paula Dean recipe, my first reaction was
. After I tried it my reaction was

This cake didn't last long but I was able to snap a pic before it vanished
. I had never heard of a green tomato cake. Have any of you ever had one?
Mama used to make a green tomatoes bread that was good. More like a cake than a bread though. I always liked pickled green tomatoes best though.
Never,but Ive made Prune cake and that sounded strange to me until I ate it.Please tell the wife it looks great and I bet it is good.Ive made green tomato pickels before and they are also good.
Sorry for the delayed response, been hectic around here. For those who want the recipe I will post for your enjoyment
. This really is a delicious cake.
