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!

If you're not on Pinterest yet then it's time to join! It's fun and addicting and you'll never lose your favourite links again! It's kind of a web based bookmarking/favourites system.

I'm a few days behind with my pinning but I've been emailing myself lists of items that need to be pinned. I find it a bit more complicated to do on my phone and prefer to use the pinmarklet method on the laptop instead.

At some point, I'm going to start pinning my favourite blogs.

Why didn't they think of Pinterest earlier? I love it and I know I'm not the only one who's hooked! I'm going to get caught up right now while I enjoy the coffee that my thoughtful husband brought me on his way home.

Join me on Pinterest won't you?


  1. Pinterest is so addicting, I have to limit my time there but I do love pinning all the great recipes I find then when I want to make something, it's right there in picture form. And I can pull items up on my phone to check ingredients or show someone what I'm talking about. Yup, I love Pinning!
