Our answer

NIgella's Thyme And Lemon Bundt Cake (from SIMPLY NIGELLA) includes thyme as this herb goes well in both sweet and savoury dishes. The recipe suggests a small bunch of thyme, which we would usually consider to be about 20g or a little under one ounce.

However, the main measurement that you need for the recipe is the amount of thyme used in the cake batter and this is 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) of picked thyme leaves. The remaining thyme is used for decoration and the quantity is very much up to you, so you can be as generous or as sparse as you like with leaves and sprigs. Though as Nigella mentions, she likes to "strew with abandon".
