Preheat the oven to 450 F.
Toss tomato slices with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Arrange tomato slices on a sheet pan in a single layer. Roast them in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until the tomatoes begin to caramelize and turn lightly brown.
For the Tomato-Basil Olive Oil Cake:
Meanwhile, combine flour, eggs, garlic, salt, and olive oil in a large bowl; mix well.
When tomatoes have finished roasting, remove them from the oven and reduce temperature to 350 F. Allow roasted tomatoes to cool for about 10 minutes.
Reserve 8 to 10 roasted tomato slices for the top of the cake. Add the remaining tomatoes (about 1 cup) and the basil to a food processor and blend until smooth. Add tomato/basil mixture to the cake batter and mix well. Pour batter evenly into a lightly greased round 9″ x 1.5″ baking dish and top with the reserved roasted tomato slices.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until top of cake begins to lightly brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Then remove it from the oven and cut into eight pieces before serving.
