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!

Easy Cheesy Pita Pizza

Here's something I make often.

Sometimes I'll use a tortilla instead, it just depends what I have on hand. You can use any kind of cheese you like and if you're in the mood, add other toppings. I like the little bit of sourness you get from using tomato paste but you could use pizza sauce if you prefer.

Easy Cheesy Pita Pizza
Makes 1 pizza

  • 1 pita
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • shredded or sliced mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 450F.
  2. Spread the tomato paste over the pita then sprinkle with oregano and garlic. Top with cheese. Place directly on the oven rack and bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly.
  • Make sure your cheese isn't too close to the edge or it could bubble over and make a mess of your oven. You can place your pizza on a baking sheet or foil if you want to play it safe, but sometimes the bottom doesn't get crispy.
