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!

Blueberry Almond Bundt Cake

I love bundt cakes. For some reason I just really enjoy using my bundt pan over any other cake pan. I still have some blueberries in the freezer from a few weeks ago and we're going to visit my mother-in-law tomorrow, so I wanted to bring something.

You can purchase ground almonds but I just threw some whole ones (with skin) into my magic bullet and made my own.

I used apple sauce to cut back on the fat but I assure you, this cake tastes just as delicious as it would if you used butter!
