adapted from Cooks (speaking of: I have gotten a couple of awesome recipes from this site with the absolute worst instructions ever. What gives?)
Makes a 9x13 cake
Prep time: 15-20 minutes
Cook time: 35-45 minutes
butter: .50, sugar: .35, eggs: .20, tomatoes: free, flour: .20, other stuff: .05
1/2 C butter, softened significantly
2 C sugar
2 C green tomatoes, pureed
2 C flour (go on, make 1/2 C white whole wheat if you want; know one will ever know)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 C brown sugar
1 C water
1/2 stick butter
2 Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp vanilla (don't forget like I did; it adds a nice something)
Puree your tomatoes in a food processor or blender.
Preheat oven to 350.
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs. Add green tomato puree.
Add dry ingredients.
Mix it all up. Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes.When a knife comes out clean, it's done.
When it comes out, go ahead and make your topping:
Whisk together all ingredients except the vanilla. Heat them, stirring fairly constantly until they thicken (it'll boil for a minute or few and then start to thicken). Remove from heat and add the vanilla (and maybe a shake or two of salt if you're feeling feisty).
Prick the top of your cake with a fork and pour the hot topping onto the warm cake.
Serve warm or cool.
