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!

Seasoned Rice Mix - Ready to Cook

Make your own mixes and keep them in baggies ready to cook. This is a little healthier than store-bought flavoured rice packets. All you have to do is add a bit of butter. Use veggie powder and a dairy-free butter or olive oil to veganize this recipe.
