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! Italian Lemon Cake Adapted from My Recipe Confessions Makes 1 Cake Ingredients For the Cake 3 cups all purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup butter, softened 2 cups sugar 3 large eggs 1/2 cup buttermilk 1/2 cup sour cream 4 tablespoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons lemon zest 1 teaspoon vanilla For the Glaze 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar 5+ tablespoons lemon juice Directions Preheat the oven to 325F.

Slow Cooker (crock-pot) Pot Roast

This dish is very simple and quick to prepare. It's my favourite Slow Cooker recipe ever!


(sometimes I add potatoes)

Slow Cooker (crock-pot) Pot Roast
Makes 6-8 servings

Ingredients
  • 4-5 lb top sirloin roast (or whatever you like)
  • 1 teaspoon each garlic powder, paprika, dry oregano, salt & pepper
  • 1 can of mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 cups baby (or sliced) carrots
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 1 packet of onion soup mix
  • 1 cup water
Directions
  1. Rub the roast with the spice mix then in a frying pan, brown your roast on all sides.
  2. Place into the slow cooker. Top with everything else
  3. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or until it falls apart.
  4. It will release plenty of juice to make your gravy out of.

Tip: I serve mine with the juices as they are, but if you want to make a gravy, transfer the juices to a pot and bring to a simmer on the stove. Add a tablespoon of flour to some cold water and stir it well to remove lumps, then add to the simmering pot and cook until it thickens. You may need more flour depending on the amount of juice you have in the pot.
