Green Tomato Cake…

Standard

Hola!

This year we have tons of green tomatoes because of the weather. My husband picked them and asked what he should do with them. Of course I said “Well, I can try looking up new recipes for green tomatoes” and he cringed. He HATES when I say  ” I tried a new recipe”. He’s afraid to be really hungry then he is not going to like what I cooked.

Anyway, I did find a recipe for Green Tomato Cake and it’s like magic!

You go from this…

The cake is very good believe it or not! I frosted it with cream cheese frosting and it just amazing…If you don’t believe me just try it!
