Perfect complements to one another, lemon and rosemary infuse this cake with flavor. Best of all, it's in the oven within no more than 20 minutes, meaning it's a savory-sweet dessert that you could realistically bake any night of the week. A word of advice: serve it with lemon curd or, perhaps, a scoop of olive oil gelato.

I replaced the extra-virgin olive oil with the same amount of melted butter for a richer and creamier taste and texture. Since the cake is sweet, with the savory note of rosemary, it presents well in different settings. We’ve spread individual servings with lemon curd and enjoyed with tea or brushed with butter and added more rosemary to use similarly as sweet cornbread!
