Lemon Basil Cake uses the wonderful combination of lemon and basil to
turn ordinary vanilla cake into something unique and delicious. It
might sound a bit odd to put an herb like basil in a cake, but think of
how mint is often used in a similar way.
For this recipe, you'll be adding the lemon and basil ingredients to
Trader Joe's vanilla cake mix. If you prefer to make your cake from
scratch, just add the lemon and basil to your favorite vanilla cake
recipe in the same manner described below. Slice and serve topped with
fresh berries - blueberries are a perfect complement to the flavors of
this cake. The cake is already quite sweet, so I prefer it with fresh
fruit or whipped cream, but you can also drizzle it with a sauce such as
Wild Maine Blueberry Fruit Sauce, right before serving.
