Elevate the flavour of your dessert with herbs from your garden and your indulgence. My indulgence is chocolate. The best part of experimenting is sampling the herbs with chocolate. Bring herbs chocolate flavours with a semolina twist.
It’s perfect for a cake and easy quick bake. Whether you love Italian or Indian herbs, cuisine and spices are indeed a great way to boost the flavours of your dessert without adding extra sugar or butter.
In time of quarantine, I encourage you to put in your good deeds to great use; help you to stay away from depression, boredom and be creative like me. You don’t need much just keep it simple with abundance from God.
This cake is not very pretty sight, I had to do a little surgery on it. Patch it back. I dare say, I am not disappointed with it; the flavour certainly hold the cake as rich decadent moisten with olive oil. This is what I cared for the taste not beauty.
