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!

Lots of candy. We were about 1/2 way down the aisle at this point.

Quinoa. They had all kinds of grains, spices, dried fruit, nuts, candy ... you name it.

More candy.

We love the dried mangoes. We always buy the second ones in. The really yellow ones. Yum!

More dried fruit.

All kinds of fruit and nut mixes.

The chocolate that I didn't buy. They had it already shaved, chopped ... whatever you want. Large chunks of it for baking too.

Passing by the chocolate.

Giant slabs of chocolate and some biscotti on top.
