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!

  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup avocado (or unflavoured) oil
  • 1/3 cup milk

  1. Preheat oven to 400F and line a muffin tin with 12 paper liners.
  2. Mix flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a large bowl.
  3. In a measuring cup, measure 1/3 cup of oil. Add milk until the cup reads 2/3 full. Add the egg and vanilla and mix all the wet ingredients together with a fork.
  4. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry just until combined. Stir in the fresh blueberries. Divide the batter between the 12 muffin cups. About 1/3 cup batter in each. I used a ice cream scoop.
  5. Combine brown sugar, flour, butter and cinnamon with your hands until well mixed. Sprinkle over the muffins.
