These are deliciously moist. Our family really enjoys these.

I remember when I heard about tomato cakes from a fellow cook, I was quite skeptical. Believe me, you'll love it too.

How to Make Spiced Tomato Cupcakes White Chocolate Frosting


  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Core stem of tomato. Cut into quarters, and place in blender. Puree until almost a liquid. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat sugar, butter, and vanilla until creamy. Then add egg and continue to beat.
  4. Next add all dry ingredients and tomatoes. Mix thoroughly for about 2 minutes. You can add the tbsp of food coloring here so that your cupcake is a nice rich red color to really showcase the tomato.
  5. Spray cupcake tins with Baker's Joy. 2 dozen cupcakes.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely.
  7. While waiting, start the frosting. In a double broiler, melt white chocolate and milk. Set aside.
  8. Then having the cream cheese and butter room temperature, beat with the powdered sugar and vanilla.
  9. Add white chocolate. Beat until smooth.
  10. Then add the food coloring drops to your desired color intensity. Blend completely.
  11. Fill a piping bag and frost your cupcakes. I added green sugar crystals and a white chocolate chip.
