  1. In a bowl, sprinkle half the sugar and the salt on the tomatoes. Let stand for 15 minutes. In a blender, purée until smooth. Add the raisins and set aside.
  2. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Butter a 20-cm (8-inch) springform pan. Line the bottom with parchment paper.
  3. In a bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  4. In another bowl, whisk together the oil, the remaining sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer until the mixture is smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until smooth. At low speed, add dry ingredients alternately with the tomato mixture.
  5. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for about 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  6. Allow to cool slightly. Unmould and cool completely on a rack.


  1. In a bowl, cream the cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla with and electric mixer until mixture is smooth and fluffy.
  2. Frost the cake.


  1. I made this cake twice, excellent results both times. Blending the macerated green tomatoes in the blender rather than food processor or immersion blender produces a lovely moist cake. I also prefer a simple glaze rather than frosting for this cake.

  2. Just made this cake and had two pieces of it....was so surprised at how yummy it was!!! My friend just harvested her garden and made oodles of chow and still green tomatoes left. So glad I googled Ricardo and this recipe came up! :)
