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!

Egg Wraps for Breakfast

Here's an easy breakfast where you can cook the eggs in advance and then re-heat them at work the next day. I wrap the eggs up in a 9" whole wheat tortilla and put a little hot sauce or ketchup on it.

Since today is Saturday and I'm not in a rush to go anywhere, I decided to fancy my wrap up a bit. I added mushrooms, tomatoes and scallions. I'd have added my hot sauce but the kind I like is the little packets from Taco Bell, and my stash is in my drawer at work. 

The simple version that I take to work during the week.

Breakfast Egg Wraps
Makes 1 serving

  • 1 whole wheat tortilla
  • 1/2 cup liquid eggs (I used veggie)
  • 1 cup sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup diced fresh tomato
  • 1 scallion, chopped
  • salt, pepper and hot sauce to taste
  1. Fry your eggs in a nonstick pan sprayed with a little cooking spray. Medium heat is best. You can scramble them or keep them in the shape of an omelette.
  2. Place the eggs on the wrap. Then, spray the same pan with a little more cooking spray and fry the mushrooms until they're tender. About 5 minutes will do it. Add the mushrooms, tomato and scallion to the wrap. Top with salt, pepper and hot sauce if you like it.
  3. Good luck trying to roll this up!
