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!

Bull's Eye, Egg in a Basket, Toad in a Hole, Cowboy Eggs

Whatever you decide to call it, it's delicious and easy to prepare.

Use cookie cutters to make it festive or just do what my mom did and use a glass to cut out a circle.

Bull's Eye, Egg in a Basket, Toad in a Hole, Cowboy Eggs
Makes 1 sandwich

  • 1 slice of bread (I used Pumpernickel)
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • pepper
  • salt if desired
  • butter for frying
  • Butter both sides of your bread and cut a shape or hole in the middle.
  • Heat a dab of butter in a small nonstick pan over medium heat. Place the bread in the pan and fry for a minute. Break the egg into the hole and cook until the bottom is golden. Sprinkle with granulated garlic and pepper. Once golden, give it a gentle flip.
  • Sprinkle the other side with granulated garlic and pepper. Continue to fry until the egg is cooked how you like it. I like the yolk runny. When you break it, it gets all over the toast and it's delicious.
  • Sprinkle the cutout with granulated garlic and pepper and fry it up as well. It makes a tasty little piece of toast. Serve with ketchup.
Tip: If you want your egg sunny side up, simply toast one side of the bread in the pan. Once golden, flip it and then break the egg into the hole. That way both sides of your bread with be toasted. Don't cook this over high heat as you'll burn the bread before the egg has a chance to cook. Also, some granulated garlic is salty so use salt to taste.
