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!

Sour Pickled Cherries

Ingredients
  • fresh sweet cherries, washed with stems removed
  • white vinegar
  • salt
Directions
  1. Fill a clean jar with cherries. Leave about 1/2" - 1" at the top of the jar.
  2. Fill the jar with enough white vinegar to cover the cherries. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt for each cup of cherries used. Put the lid on and swirl it around to dissolve the salt. Let it sit in the fridge for several weeks.
  3. I left mine for 3 months and they were perfect.
  4. Sprinkle with salt before serving.
