I found the recipe on "Bon Appetit"-blog, and yes, their photos are much nicer than mine, I know.
However, as predicted it tasted very unique (lots of gin/juniper flavor going on) and/but really good.

WHAT TO DO WHEN CAKE TURNS OUT DRY INSTEAD OF MOIST AND JUICY!
Just cut it up, throw it in the freezer. Then pull it out, roll it in sugar, place it in a hot frying pan and sear it from each side until the sugar has caramelized.
Et voilá: dry cake turns into moist cake with a little bit of a crunch from the caramelized sugar.
I will definitely do this from now on!
Anyway, here is the recipe:
For the cake
Wil and I spent our Sunday in the garden today and prepared it for the upcoming growing season.
Our onions, garlic and chive bed is going to be quite impressive, and the rhubarb is on it's way, as well.
And we found our first violet. Looks a little rough...but hey.
