Basil Cake with Balsamic Strawberries Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2014
I made a sour cream pound cake from scratch, using the same number of eggs, butter, vanilla, and the basil, then made the balsamic strawberries as directed. It was delicious. I really liked that it was not overly sweet, and the basil was very subtle but added a nice herbal note. I took it to a zoo concert and shared with my friends and total strangers; universal thumbs way up.

I was hesitant about this cake. I am sorry but IMO, basil does not belong in cake. The basil does come through in the flavor but my friends and I did't care for it. And am not sure why everyone seems to be crazy for strawberries and Balsamic vinegar. Not a fan here either. I feel bad I couldn't get on board about this recipe Jenn.

I tried this recipe because it was so different from other cake recipes. My husband likes it so much he had two pieces. The only thing I did different was to add Splenda to the strawberries and let them sit so they could blend together. I thoughly enjoyed the way the flavors blended together when you took a bite.
