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!

Apple and Blueberry Crisp

Fruit crisps are an easy last minute dessert. You probably have most of the items in your kitchen already. I like to sneak in a little flax here and there when I'm cooking/baking. You can leave it out if you want.

Apple and Blueberry Crisp

For the Fruit Mixture
  • 2 large cooking apples, diced
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
For the Topping
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon flax seeds
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  1. Preheat the oven to 425F.
  2. In a nonstick pan over medium high heat, sautee the apples with the water until they start to get soft, about 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar, cinnamon and blueberries. Pour into a glass casserole dish.
  3. Combine the topping ingredients with your fingers until crumbly and sprinkle on top of fruit.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes or until bubbly. Let cool down a bit before you eat it because it's really hot and burning your tongue is no fun.
  5. Top with ice cream if you want to be really naughty.
