Italian Lemon Cake

This Italian lemon pound cake is a recipe that I'd had my eye on for a long time. I finally made it back in April! I skipped adding frosting but if you visit the original recipe it'll tell you how to make it. The glaze needed a lot more lemon juice than the recipe called for. I used 5 tablespoons of lemon juice and it was still very thick. The cake itself isn’t very lemony so you really do need either the glaze or the frosting to bring the lemon flavour to this recipe. I'm not complaining though, it was still really delicious!

Huevos Rancheros - Mexican Rancher's Eggs { with black beans, salsa and cheddar on a tortilla }

Huevos Rancheros is a popular Mexican breakfast. It means Rancher's Eggs and it's yummy!

You could probably place a ring of the beans and salsa on the tortilla and crack an egg in the middle before baking, but you'd risk the chance of your tortilla burning before your egg is cooked (unless you like them on the raw side). I prefer to fry my egg a little first. 

Huevos Rancheros

Makes 1 serving

  • 1 8" whole wheat tortilla
  • 1 large egg
  • butter
  • salt & pepper
  • pinch of oregano
  • 3 tablespoons store bought salsa
  • 2 tablespoons canned black beans, rinsed & drained
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground chipotle powder or to taste
  • 1/2 oz shredded sharp cheddar
  1. Preheat oven to 425F
  2. Fry egg in a little butter and sprinkle with salt, pepper and oregano. I like my yolk runny but not the whites. Cook it slightly less than you want it in the end.
  3. Place the tortilla on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Place the egg on top.
  4. Mix salsa, beans and chipotle powder in a bowl then place around the egg. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and top with chopped avocado.
