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!

I'm revisiting this recipe because I have some new photos to share! I made this for Christmas as usual, but this time I didn't chop the ingredients as finely as I normally do. I think I prefer it a bit chunkier! Although, I will admit, I had a little more trouble getting it out of the container. I would definitely recommend using plastic wrap to line your container if you're making this chunkier version. All the ingredients were the same as the original recipe.

  1. Happy 2012!

    This dip is a great party food and I like the chunky bits inside.

  2. Hi Jennifer, now this sounds like something I would love. Too bad I didn't have the recipe for the holidays as I think this would have been a hit. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
