Green Tomato Cake
from Susanna at Our_Recipe_World

2 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup melted shortening
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup pecans or walnuts
1 cup raisins
2 1/2 cups diced green tomatoes
coconut (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°. In mixing bowl, beat sugar, shortening, eggs and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg; slowly beat into egg mixture. Blend well. Stir in pecans, raisins and tomatoes. Pour into greased 9x13-inch pan. Top with coconut if desired. Bake for one hour, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.
