Default Green tomato Cake Recipe

I found this on my soap forum of all things. Everyone was raving about it. There was a mention of icing with cream cheese or putting powder sugar on it.
Green Tomato Cake

· 4 cups chopped green tomatoes
· 1 tablespoon salt
· 1/2 cup butter
· 2 cups white sugar
· 2 eggs
· 2 cups all-purpose flour
· 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
· 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
· 1 teaspoon baking soda
· 1/4 teaspoon salt
· 1/2 cup raisins
· 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1. Place chopped tomatoes in a bowl and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon salt. Let stand 10 minutes. Place in a colander, rinse with cold water and drain.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch baking pan.
3. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and beat until creamy.
4. Sift together flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, soda and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add raisins and nuts to dry mixture; add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Dough will be very stiff. Mix well.
5. Add drained tomatoes and mix well. Pour into the prepared 9 x 13 inch pan.
6. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean.
