Green Tomato Chocolate Cake by Christine

Green Tomato Cake by Christine
I used my green tomatoes to make this recipe. Interesting flavor. It definitely needs icing though. I baked mine in a 13 x 9 pan. Texture is very light and fluffy.


Green Tomato Chocolate Cake 

1 c. green tomato puree (2 or 3 green tomatoes)
2/3 c. butter
1 3/4 c. sugar
2 eggs
4 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. unbleached flour
1/2 c. cocoa
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. beer

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and chocolate, mix. Add vanilla. Sift together rest of dry ingredients.

Add puree to 1/2 of the dry ingredients. Mix and add to cream mixture in mixing bowl. Mix well. Then add the rest of the dry ingredients.
At last add the beer.

Blend well.

Spoon into 2 greased and floured 9 inch cake pans. Smooth out tops. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Cool. Frost with your favorite frosting.
