Macario’s mom Blanche used to make a Tomato Cake. I knew her before she passed away suddenly a couple years back, but somehow I never tasted her Tomato Cake and I regret that.
This is the same woman who made an absolutely unparalleled Avocado Pie, which people are still talking about (in a good way). Maybe I’ll tell you about that another time.
But about that Tomato Cake. I poked around on the web looking for Tomato Cake recipes but only found recipes for spice cakes made with tomatoes, and Macario says no, no, no.
Blanche used a white cake recipe, but she substituted tomato juice for the liquid. She topped it with a white butter frosting that she mixed peach chunks into.
Macario looks hungry when he describes it and says the combination went together really well. I told him he could make me one for my upcoming birthday, and we both liked that idea.
