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!

Microwave Nutella S’mores

Need a sugar fix in a hurry? I was sitting at work the other day, thinking about what I was going to have with my evening coffee, and I remembered making microwave s’mores in the past.

This time I decided to add Nutella, because who doesn’t LOVE Nutella? I didn’t have any big marshmallows so I used 1/8 cup of mini ones.




Microwave Nutella S’mores
Makes 4 s'mores

Ingredients
  • 8 graham crackers
  • 4 teaspoons Nutella
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
Directions
  1. Spread a teaspoon of Nutella on 4 of the crackers and set aside.
  2. Place the marshmallows in a single layer on the other 4 crackers. Place this on a microwave safe plate and let it go for about 10 seconds. If it's not gooey, let it go for another 5 seconds or until it is gooey.
  3. Remove the plate from the oven and immediately place the Nutella cracker on top of the marshmallow cracker. Now squish!
