Green Tomato Bread (it's more like cake really)

Makes two 9 x 5" loaves


2 cups finely diced unripened tomatoes
2 cups white sugar
1 ½ cups chopped walnuts
1 cup canola oil
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon baking powder


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9x5-inch loaf pans.

Step 2

Mix tomatoes, sugar, walnuts, canola oil, eggs, vanilla extract, and salt together in a large bowl until well blended. Mix flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and baking powder together in a separate bowl; stir into egg mixture until just blended. Spoon batter into prepared loaf pans.

Step 3

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the middle of each loaf comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let cool in the pans for about 10 minutes before transferring loaves to wire racks to cool completely.


I tried this recipe to use up some left over unripened tomatoes from my greenhouse, and it works really well. Just make sure the batter doesn't end up too dry.
