    I made this cake with a few green and some tomatoes which were red but weren’t ripening. It was a lovely moist crumbly cake, although I did find it had a bitter taste in places. Whether it was the tomatoes or spices I don’t know although I have to say my two friends said it was lovely and took some home with them. I’ve just tried it with crème fraiche.
