Green Tomato and Pecan Cake with Brown Butter Glaze

Green Tomato and Pecan Cake with Brown Butter Glaze

I know, you think I’ve totally lost my marbles on this one, don’t you? I mean who puts green tomato in a cake? The answer? You will….one bite of this cake , you’ll be singing its wonders to all your family and friends.
Some recipes recommend that you puree the tomatoes, but our opinion is that makes the batter and cake too moist, other cut the tomatoes into bigger chunks, but for our tastes it works best to finely dice the tomatoes so they add a little to the consistency but don’t overwhelm the batter. The tomatoes and chopped pecans will work together to give you a fruit cake like texture and we think you’ll find that you just can not get enough!
Have you tried this recipe? Do you have an abundance of green tomatoes? Are you health conscious?
