 Last year, I visited my sister in Lennox Head. I do this often, but this time it was little more special. It was the weekend of her sort of baby shower. I say sort of because there were no pink cupcakes, no drinks in jars and definitely no DIY onesie station. Just some chicks, some cake and this.

The cake was definitely the star of the afternoon. No, it was nothing like these either. It was a simple Gluten Free Strawberry and Thyme Cake from the beautiful blog My Darling Lemon Thyme. The cake has been on my mind since.

 It was incredibly moist, full of flavour and you honestly wouldn’t know it was gluten free. With the crazy- cheap peaches around at the moment I made some changes to the recipe to give you a Gluten Free Rosemary and Peach Cake. You have to try this and the strawberry thyme version. One of the best cakes of my life!

    Oooh, peach and rosemary sounds like a wonderful combination. Best cake of my life is called Praga, the way Mama and Babushka make it, with lots of chocolate and buttercream and amaretto. Mmmmm….

    The best cake of my life was probably a strawberry ‘fraisier’ (kinda like the french version of a strawberry sponge cake) that my mum bought for my grandfather’s birthday a few years ago. I still dream about that cake but this gorgeous peach and rosemary creation of yours also sounds divine!

    Best cake of your life! That’s a huge call, given the quality of your cakes.
    I love savoury herbs in sweet things so this sounds divine.
    I think maybe my best cake is Donna Hay’s super tangy, super moist lime yoghurt cake. Like a mudcake but limey and yoghurty 🙂

    Oh my! This sounds amazing. I have never made a cake of such flavours but am very tempted. I have a bunch of rosemary I have to use… hmmmm….
