This is a very good, moist cake. I pureed the tomatoes without the seeds and drained them well without salt, using two cups pureed tomatoes. I added a tsp. of molasses when adding the eggs to give the sugar the flavor of brown sugar. I also changed the spices to 2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, 1/2 tsp. allspice and ¼ tsp. cloves. Adding the molasses and extra spices covered up any possible taste of the tomatoes coming through. They also helped to give it a nice brown color throughout with no hint of green anywhere. Since I didn’t use salt when draining the tomato puree, I think I will increase the salt to ½ tsp. next time to counteract some of the sweetness. It doesn’t need any icing.
