Loved this! Yes, the cake was hearty, but perfect to end a light spring meal. Loved the rosemary/lemon combo. Thanks! —
The rosemary and lemon combination, which I love in savory dishes (like roasted chicken with lemon and rosemary) works really well in a desert too! The rosemary gives it a subtle flavor and aroma and looks really pretty in the fodant. THe people I made it for commented on the unique flavors and really liked it. I found the cake a little heartier than I expected. I would recommend it as a brunch cake instead of as an after-dinner dessert. Great recipe!
