This delicious cake gets bright, rich flavor from orange zest, sugar, and chocolate chips mixed into the creamy batter. We're finishing it with a savory-sweet glaze made with mascarpone and rosemary-infused simple syrup.

instructions
Make the rosemary simple syrup
1 Make the rosemary simple syrup

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 350°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. In a small pot, combine the rosemary sprigs, powdered sugar, and 1/4 cup of water. Cook on high, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until boiling and the sugar has dissolved. Turn off the heat. Set aside to cool and let the rosemary flavor infuse into the syrup, at least 30 minutes. Carefully discard the rosemary sprigs.

2 Prepare the remaining ingredients

Meanwhile, remove the mascarpone from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the orange to get 2 teaspoons of zest (reserve the orange for future use if desired). In a bowl, combine the flour, biscuit mix, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Whisk to combine. Working in 30 second increments, melt the butter in a large bowl in the microwave (or melt in a pot on the stove, then transfer to a large bowl). Add the orange zest, cream (shaking the packet before opening), sour cream, egg, and granulated sugar; whisk to thoroughly combine.

Mix the batter

Add the dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients; using a spatula, gently mix until no white streaks remain. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish (or line with parchment). Transfer the batter to the prepared dish; spread in an even layer. Bake 23 to 27 minutes, or until the batter is cooked through and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool completely (for quicker cooling, place in the refrigerator).

Once the cake has cooled, in a bowl, whisk together the  mascarpone and rosemary simple syrup. Top the cooled cake with the glaze and spread into an even layer. Cut into equal-sized pieces. Enjoy!
