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!

Marble Cake

This marble cake is super easy to make and uses very simple ingredients that I think most of us already have in the kitchen. I've made it in a bundt pan and a loaf pan and both work. I guess it just depends what shape you like better.

Here's the loaf pan cake.

Here's the one I made in the bundt pan.

The loaf in the back is Banana Bread.

Makes 12 servings

Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray and flour your bundt or loaf pan and set aside. I also like to use parchment when I make anything in the loaf pan.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, butter or margarine, eggs, vanilla, and milk in a large bowl.
  3. Beat on low to combine all the ingredients, then increase the speed to medium for about 2 minutes or until smooth. Transfer 3/4 cup of the batter to a smaller bowl and stir in the cocoa until well combined.
  4. Pour the white batter into your prepared pan, then drop spoonfuls of the chocolate batter on top. Use a skewer to swirl the two batters together into a marble pattern.
  5. Bake for about 30 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
