Amalfi lemon cake with basil and lemon syrup

I love cooking and working with fresh ingredients, I find it’s good for the soul! And Italy is obviously a big inspiration to me and the ROMAINE brand. So I’m delighted to share with you this delicious Lemon & Basil cake recipe by model, chef and wellness advocate Karen Koramshai.

This is one of my favourite sweet treats as it reminds me of similar cakes I enjoyed when on holiday on the Amalfi Coast in Italy, home to the world’s best lemons. This makes a delicious dessert, but I love a small slice of it with a strong espresso, preferably sitting in the Italian sunshine!
