Chocolate Basil Cake + $50 Williams Sonoma Gift Card Giveaway [Contest Closed]

Basil is usually treated as a two dimensional commodity, which is upsetting for our sensitive friend. It’s the shining star in pesto, the uniting factor in the group of pine nuts and Parmigiano, and trying to make caprese without basil is trying to conduct a chorus without harmony. It’s like John Daker singing “Amore.”  It just doesn’t work, does it?

Still, basil is pretty under appreciated for what it really brings to the table. It’s asked to creep behind the veil of the savory, only being offered a supportive role when it was born to lead. If you look at what basil lends to the flavor of any particular dish, it becomes glaringly obvious how underused it is.

 

Sweets, man. Basil is sweet, and while its herbal sister, mint, has found glory in ice cream, candy and other sugary applications, basil is left wading in a murky red puddle of marinara and despair, seething. Basil gets no respect. But nobody puts basil in the corner. Nobody.

Chocolate Basil Cake

Recently I did a guest post for Stark Bros on Blueberry Basil Meyer Lemonade (Shout out to me!), but thought, why not chocolate? So I put it in this chocolate cake. That’s…actually the whole story. It’s anticlimactic, but what do you want from me?

Hey genius, how about a few basil facts? Some Eastern cultures — such as in Hinduism with holy basil — revere basil as an herb of love, said to be from the gods. Sometimes it’s placed in the hand or mouth of the dead to ensure their ascension into heaven, or God. For some European cultures — namely the ancient Greeks — it was believed to be the herb of Satan.

Keats once wrote a poem about a woman, Isabella, who mourned her murdered lover, Lorenzo, by putting his head into a pot with basil and filled it daily with her tears. Me? I put it in cake and then in my stomach because, unlike Isabella, I’m not dist-herbed. Can I get a high five?

 

Did you know that dogs can eat basil because it isn’t toxic for them? True story! But chocolate is! Sorry, dogs!

 

There are additional beliefs that basil can bring wealth if you carry it in your pocket, and others that say it will cause you to develop scorpions in your brain and die. Like, literal scorpions. In your brain.

 

Whatever you believe, know this: chocolate and basil combined is awesome. Chocolate and dogs combined is tragic.

 

THE GIVEAWAY

 

I really don’t want to detract from this post, because…well, did you see that chocolate basil cake? It’s flippin’ awesome. So make sure to love all up on it, as this is just kind of an extension of the chocolate cake post that came about last minute. It’s an extension of that post in the same way wooden legs are an extension of a real leg. Like, you didn’t originally intend for your real leg to be extended by a plank, it just sort of happened.

Full disclosure: I don’t have a wooden plank leg, but if I did, I would probably start tap dancing. Except instead of tap dancing, it’d be more like tap clomping. Like a clydesdale. On account of the wooden leg.

Anyway, this is my first giveaway!

    LOL… “dist-herbed”… Punniest thing I’ve heard all day!!!

    Um, this cake looks really good… I wish I lived in your neighborhood, because I want to try some and even though I’m a baker – sometimes I just want to eat someone else’s cake.

    What would I spend a $50 Williams-Sonoma Gift Card on? Oh lord…. I could put it towards that new Breville Ice Cream Maker/Compressor that rocks my world… Or I could get a nice Emile Henry pie dish. Hmm. The list is too long. That place is like a candy store (really, sometimes they have candy).

    You rock, Kerry! Always entertaining blog posts, regardless of giveaways. You have a great writing style.

    I really just came over to ogle that gorgeous chocolate basil cake but I LOVE your post and all the fun facts about basil! Basil is one of my very very very favorite herbs! I have used it in things like watermelon basil sorbet and Italian creme sodas, but never have I thought to pair basil with chocolate. You have inspired me!

    Ok, gift card: what would I buy? I don’t know, something kitchen-y. There is nothing more fun than a kitchen store … decisions are SO hard there, though! It’s so hard NOT to buy the whole store!

    I have my mouth all set for that cake, but I’ll try to tell you the answer you want. I will look for gadgets for my kitchen.

    I would buy some spices for my grandmother! They closed the store nearest to me in garden state plaza so I have to make the treck to the next store 12 minutes further from my house but its worth it. I love the store the products the feel. I even love browsing their online store! lol thank you :)

    I just got a mirowave oven from my sister that you can also bake & broil & toast in! I would buy some cooking bowls/pans. It’s a smaller unit & I do not have many pans/bowls to fit in it!
    Maybe an awesome smaller pizza stone!
