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!

Have you ever run out of eggs or just didn't feel like using them in your cake? Well that's when this recipe for Crazy Cake will come in handy. I've made this a few times before but this time I scaled the recipe down from 18 to 2 servings and got 12 mini cupcakes out of it. The site I got the recipe from will do the calculation for you. I still made some adjustments though. And don't worry about the vinegar, you can't taste it at all!
