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!

Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf

I almost had another disaster in the kitchen tonight. This was supposed to be a recipe for Buffalo Chicken Meatballs. I spent all that time rolling little meatballs but when I went to put it in the oven somehow the pan tipped sideways onto the door of my oven.

The good news is that the meatballs miraculously got rolled up in the parchment that I was wise enough to line the pan with. So I was able to save it! But I wasn't about to roll it into balls again so I just pressed the mixture into an 8x8 glass dish and now I'm calling it meatloaf. A very delicious meatloaf!

Obviously, you can make meatballs with this instead if you want to. Also, I'm sure you could get away with adding a little more wing sauce. I wasn't sure how spicy it would turn out and I wanted to give some to my kids. Go for 1/3 cup as the original recipe suggests.

You can see how it's coming away from the sides when it's cooked.

Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter, cooled
  • 1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce
  • 1/4 cup minced celery
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs

  • 1 egg
  • 1lb ground chicken
  1. Preheat the oven to 450F and line a 8x8 glass dish with a piece of parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together except chicken. Once mixed, add the chicken and use your hands to combine.
