THB #16 Rosemary Lemon Polenta Cake

I was in doubt my family would accept this cake so I decided to bake just half recipe and oh my, how wrong I was
Except for the kids, the whole family loved it, including my 'not so easy to please' mum :)
Even though rosemary is an alien plant for her, but she didn't mind the fragrant in the cake at all :)

A beautiful butter cake with lemon and rosemary fragrance. Soft, moist and taste wonderful, too. I didn't mind eating it plain, but drizzling it with lemon rosemary syrup was much better :)

I followed the recipe exactly, except that I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup (half recipe)
I also replaced buttermilk with low fat yoghurt
For my half recipe, I used 20x10cm loaf pan and it's just nice

The next time I bake this again, I will try lavender instead of rosemary
It should be great, too :)
