Basil Lemon Cake

I first sampled this basil lemon cake at a party. It had such a fresh flavor from the combination of lemon and basil. I knew it would be perfect for potlucks in the summer. So of course, I had to ask for the recipe. Wouldn't you? Well, it turns out the recipe is from Simply Organic by Jesse Ziff Cool. I did a little poking around the internet and found the recipe here. You will need to scroll down a little to see the recipe, it's the second one. Enjoy.

As you can see, I had fun decorating the cake. I placed a doily over the top and sprinkled powdered sugar all over the cake. Then I added some toothpicks tied with ribbon to make it a little more festive.

You're making me hungry! I'd love to have this cake with some tea. Using the doily as a stencil + turning it to a lantern are both great ideas!

And thanks so much for the stumble!
