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!

Judy's Holiday Punch

Actually, you could serve this punch at any occasion but since Christmas is coming up I thought I'd call it a holiday punch. My cousin's mother-in-law makes this punch for parties. It's easy and delicious! You could also add alcohol if you want, but we serve this to the kids too.


Judy's Holiday Punch

Ingredients
  • cranberry juice, cold
  • pineapple juice, cold
  • ginger ale, cold
  • sliced oranges
Directions
  1. Combine equal parts cranberry juice, pineapple juice and ginger ale. Add sliced oranges.
Tips:
  • You could also add frozen cranberries or raspberries or freeze some of the cranberry and pineapple juice in ice cube trays and add it to the punch. I wouldn't add regular ice cubes or your punch will get watered down as they melt.
