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! Italian Lemon Cake Adapted from My Recipe Confessions Makes 1 Cake Ingredients For the Cake 3 cups all purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup butter, softened 2 cups sugar 3 large eggs 1/2 cup buttermilk 1/2 cup sour cream 4 tablespoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons lemon zest 1 teaspoon vanilla For the Glaze 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar 5+ tablespoons lemon juice Directions Preheat the oven to 325F.

Fried Halloumi (Halloom) Cheese

I've been eating this salty, chewy cheese for years. I love cheese. All kinds of cheese!! The brand I buy is called Halloom (Cedar Phoenicia brand) but if you do a google search, the results will come up as Halloumi.

I decided I needed to try frying it as I've seen them do on TV. I went with butter but you can use oil.

Fried Halloumi (Halloom) Cheese

  • Halloumi Cheese, Sliced
  • butter or oil
  1. Melt a teaspoon of butter or oil in a hot nonstick pan, over medium high heat.
  2. Add the cheese. Cook it for just a minute or two or until the bottom is golden. Flip and repeat. It really only takes minutes.
  3. The amazing thing about this cheese is that it doesn't melt like other cheeses. The inside is still chewy even after you fry it. If you're using butter, go with the unsalted kind, the cheese is very salty.

  3. I so want to go home and make this now, there's nothing like a little grilled halloumi, I used to live in Cyprus, and order this at a little seafood restaurant right on the water.
    I've actually stopped using any grease, I now just put a little flour on them and cook them on a really hot pan.
