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.

Chicken Marinades

Here are a few marinades that you can whip up quickly, toss in a bag with your chicken, and freeze until you're ready to cook. 

To make these marinades, I lined up a few bowls on the counter and starting putting stuff in them.

I can’t give you measurements because I didn’t measure anything, but I can tell you what’s in each one.

I didn’t add oil to any of them but I suppose you could if you want to.

If any of your marinades seem a bit thick, add a little bit of chicken stock to thin them out.

If you want to make any of these marinades and cook the chicken the same day or the day after, stir in a little bit of plain yogurt. It helps to tenderise the chicken. I don't know if it would freeze well because I haven't tried it.

Just line the bowls up and start putting things in. I ended up making 7 flavours in the end.

Store them in bags with the flavour written on them. The bag at the top was a second bag of teriyaki which we grilled that day.
