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!

Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops

This recipe would probably be better if you fried the breaded chops in a little olive oil. I baked these and they were a bit chewier than I would have liked.

You could use this coating on chicken cutlets as well.


Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops
Original recipe from fatsecret
Makes 6 servings

Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 tsp leaves dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp leaves dried oregano
  • 1 dash black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp leaves thyme
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 pork chops (top loin, lean, boneless)
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment or wax paper and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl whisk together mustard, oil, and spices.
  4. Season the 4 pork chops with pepper, then brush both sides of the chops with the mustard mixture.
  5. Press the grated parmesan cheese into both sides of the chops. (I am pretty liberal with the cheese. I like a thick coating but I'm sure a thin one will work too.)
  6. Place the chops on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes. The coating should be browned and slightly crispy and the pork should be cooked all the way through.
