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!

Stuffed Baked Potatoes

You can bake or boil your potatoes. Boiling will make the first part of this dish go faster, but baking them adds even more flavour. You want the potatoes tender but don't cook them until they're falling apart. Let them cool enough so that you can handle them before scooping out the flesh.

If you're feeling really naughty, you could add some homemade bacon bits and extra sour cream to these.

Stuffed Baked Potatoes
Makes 5-10 servings (I can eat a whole potato, how about you?)

  • 5 medium boiled or baked potatoes, whole with skin on
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 chopped scallion
  • sprinkle of the following spices
  • paprika, garlic salt, pepper, dill
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheese of choice
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Cut the potatoes in half then scoop out the flesh leaving enough flesh to hold the shape of the skin.
  3. Mash the flesh with the sour cream, butter, parmesan and scallion. Fill the skins with this mashed potato mixture. Place the potatoes in a glass baking dish.
  4. Mix the spices together then sprinkle the spice mix over the potatoes. Top with some shredded cheese.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden and bubbly.
