Lemon dose #1: Lemon-Rosemary Cake

After tasting a bite of my friend's lemon-rosemary cake at Chez Zee, I knew I had to find the perfect copycat recipe. After whipping up a success in the kitchen for dinner (see the pizza?), I decided spending another hour or two baking would be a treat, and not a chore.

I found a simple recipe and followed it to the tee. I'm not going to post it just yet, because I think it can be better. Once I get it just right, I'll post it here.

The first try was tasty, but it was too dense for what I wanted. I also want to try the lighter, fluffier version with a seven-minute icing. Not a bad first try, though. I'll say that.
