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!

Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Blondies

I know I keep saying that I'm not baking anything else before Christmas, but I just can't help myself.

These Chocolate Chip Blondies are made with a box of cake mix and are very easy to put together. The first day the texture is like a dense cake, and the second day they end up as something in between dense cake and a cookie. You can use sprinkles instead of chocolate chips if you like.

  • 1/3 cup milk (or water)
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line an 8x8 or even a 9x13 inch glass dish with parchment. Spray with cooking spray.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until well combined, then pour the batter into the prepared pan. The batter will be thick. Use a spatula to spread it out as evenly as possible.
  3. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely before cutting into 20 squares or they'll fall apart.
