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!

Pizza Dough

I prefer my pizza on thin crust so i would recommend rolling this dough out thinly. It was a little dense, but I imagine that's because the dough didn't have a chance to rise for very long.

The original recipe doesn't say anything about rising at all but now that I've tried it, I would say that we should give it time to rise. Let it rise for longer than 30 minutes if you've got time.

Makes enough for 1 large pizza or 1 extra large thin crust pizza

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoon rapid rise yeast (or 1 packet)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  1. Mix dry ingredients then make a well in the centre. Add oil and water then use your hands to mix it until it forms a ball. There shouldn't be any crumbs left in the bowl.
  2. Rub with a little oil and cover with plastic wrap. Let the dough rise for about 30 minutes (or longer) while you prepare your toppings.
  3. Add toppings and cheese as desired and bake in a preheated 375F oven for about 25 minutes or until your toppings are cooked.
