Recipe for 1 cake:

⅓ cup basil leaves, minced
1¼ cup whole milk (I used 2% by necessity)
2½ cups flour
2½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
¾ cup (1½ sticks) butter, softened
1¾ cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. lime juice
zest of 4 limes

For the glaze:
Juice of 4 limes
170 g icing sugar

Preheat the oven for upper and bottom heat to 350°F.

Grease a bundt cake pan and set aside.

Mince the basil finely and add it to the milk and let it stay aside for about 10 minutes.

Whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder.

Then beat the butter and lime zest in an electric mixer or your food processor until its creamy (it will take about 2 minutes). After that slowly add the sugar and beat everything on medium speed until everything is fluffy (about 2 more minutes). Add the eggs one at a time and let everything mix very well one after another. Add the vanilla and lime juice.

Mix in the flour mixture and the basil milk in 4 and 3 steps, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Pour the dough into the bundt cake pan and smooth the top.

Bake the cake for about 40-50 minutes. Test the cake before you take it out (every oven is different). Let the cake cool down in the pan for about 15 minutes.

In this time make the glaze. Mix together icing sugar and lime juice.

Let the cake cool, add the glaze and top and let it dry a little before you slice it. ❤

Enjoy – Bon appétit!
