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!

Honey Fried Figs with Honey Cinnamon Yogurt

On the weekend I bought a box of figs. As it turns out, they're not as tasty as I'd hoped they would be. I had to find a way to make them more flavourful. Frying them in honey and butter is a delicious way to do that! You could also serve these figs with ice cream.

I used the good honey this time, not the one from the farm. This one tastes even better.

Honey Fried Figs with Honey Cinnamon Yogurt

  • 6 figs, cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. In a small nonstick pan, melt the butter and 1 tablespoon of honey over medium high heat. Once it starts bubbling, place the figs in the pan cut side down. Let them cook away for 3 or 4 minutes, swirling the pan a few times.
  2. In the meantime, mix the yogurt with remaining honey and cinnamon.
  3. Remove the figs from the pan and drizzle any remaining honey sauce over them. Serve with the yogurt. And don't forget to lick the plate!
