The idea of combining traditionally sweet dishes with savory herbs has been strangely alluring to me as of late. Perhaps you recall the maple raspberry coffee cake, featuring rosemary and thyme. This is the start of a trend I don’t see ending anytime soon. I also love the concept of salty with sweet. A quick look at my desserts category reveals as much, with a number of salt-kissed sweet treats. This moist cake is not too sweet and the herbs add subtle flavor. Top it with fresh seasonal berries and you’re set. This cake would be perfect with tea at just about any time of day. I might have nibbled a bit at breakfast.

Mmmm…I bet this flavor profile would work well in an olive oil cake, too! I’ll have to experiment.
This cake is amazing in flavor and simplicity! Thank you! xo
