    3 Zesty Lemons's Note:

    This recipe packs a piney punch of fresh rosemary flavor. It's from one my favorite Philadelphia restaurants, Mercato. For more information and serving suggestions for this recipe visit

      Changed recipe by adding 3 large Granny Smith apples peeled and cut into small chunks and additional 1/4 C of sugar. Baked at 350 for 50 minutes in 9 " Springform pan which was buttered and floured with plain organic bread crumbs. Am a pastry chef, and thought this was a delicious cake for serving for afternoon snack, as is typically done in Italy.

      Wow, this cake/bread took me to another dimension. I used fresh rosemary from our herb garden and served it as a bread with Pondicherry Lentils over basmati rice for an Indian/French/Italian culinary detour. Thanks for posting. I will be making this again soon!
