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!

Rachael Ray's Cheeseburger Egg Rolls with Russian Dressing Dipper

My mom made this recipe for us for lunch today. She regularly watches The Rachael Ray Show and writes down recipes that she likes. She's not very computer savvy or she'd know that she can look for this stuff online after the show.

I'll write the recipe out the way my mom made it. She made a few changes such as using yellow mustard instead of grainy. They really are delicious and kids love them! I did look up the recipe by the way. Here it is.

All filled and ready to roll.

Place them seam side down on the tray.

Fresh from the oven. Yum-o!

All that meaty goodness!

Rachael Ray's Cheeseburger Egg Rolls with Russian Dressing Dipper
Makes 16 rolls

For the Rolls
  • 1lb lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup cheese, grated or cubed (we used marble cheddar)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 package egg roll wrappers
  • olive oil (or cooking spray)
  • sesame seeds
For the Dressing
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons pickle relish
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • dash of pepper
  1. In a nonstick pan, fry the ground beef and onions until the meat is cooked through. Break it up with a spoon while it's cooking. Stir in the salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Let the mixture cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  3. Divide the meat mixture between 16 egg roll wrappers. You can make more or less depending on how much you fill them up. Sprinkle on some cheese.
  4. Brush a little water along the edges of the wrapper. Fold the top and bottom ends of the wrapper in. Fold over one side then roll. Place the wraps on a foil or parchment lined baking sheet and brush with a little olive oil. Sprinkle on some sesame seeds and bake for about 20 minutes or until golden.
  5. While those are cooking, whip up the sauce. Mix the sour cream, relish, ketchup and pepper. Serve with the burger rolls.
  • I bet you could make these with puff pastry or filo!
