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!

No Bake Cheesecake

Everybody loves these! There's no baking involved and they are inexpensive to make especially when you find the ingredients on sale. 

Cherry is always the most popular. I've tried making other flavours and people just don't like them as much. 

I also recommend using a Keebler brand crust. I've tried store-brand crusts and they just don't taste the same.


No Bake Cheesecake
Makes 2 cheesecakes

Ingredients
  • 2 graham pie crusts (I use store-bought)
  • 2 8oz packages cream cheese, softened
  • 2 packets lemon Jello
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest (optional but yummy!)
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 can pie filling
Directions
  1. Beat the cream cheese, Jello and lemon zest on medium speed until lumps disappear.
  2. Add whipping cream and start on low. Once combined with cheese, turn the mixer up to high speed and whip until it's stiff and fluffy.
  3. Pour the mixture into prepared graham shells and top with pie filling. Chill for several hours until firm. You will be able to slice it once it sets.
Tips:
  • You could use any flavour of Jello and pie filling to come up with your own combination.
