Green Tomato Cake

The web is full of recipes for green tomato cakes. They usually have lots of sugar. I got this recipe from a friend of mine.

1/3 C softened butter
3/4 C sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Beat butter and sugar till light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs and beat till incorporated.

1 C flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Sift above into butter mixture and beat well. Spoon batter in oiled(!) 9x9 cake pan.

Slice 2-3 green tomatoes into round slices, then chunk up the slices.
1/2 C chopped walnuts

Arrange tomato chunks on top of batter.
Sprinkle lightly with a mixture of sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and walnuts.

Dot with butter (optional)

Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes, until brown on top.

**Super easy to make. This is a picture of it before it went into the oven. Once out, it looks like a normal cake.
