No you can't taste the tomatoes.

Fresh Tomato Cake
1 cup brown sugar, dark
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
2 large eggs
3 cups flour, all-purpose
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups tomatoes, ripe and peeled
1/2 cup nuts, chopped
1/2 cup dates, chopped
1/2 cup raisins, seedless chopped
Mix cream sugar and shortening.
Add sifted dry ingredients, mixing well.
Stir in tomatoes, nuts, dates, and raisins.
Put into greased and floured 9x13 inch baking pan.
Bake in preheated 350'F oven for 35 minutes or until cake tests done.
Frost with cream cheese frosting.
I changed a couple things.
I didn't peel the tomatoes. Instead, I pureed them.
Didn't add raisins or dates.
Doubled the nuts.
