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!

Wonton Apple Cinnamon Turnovers

It doesn't get any easier than this! These are best eaten right away, otherwise they get soggy. When I say right away, I mean after letting them cool slightly first so the icing doesn't melt right off. 

Yum! A great way to use an apple that might be a little too soft to eat as a snack.

Wonton Apple Turnovers
Makes 12 Servings

For the Turnovers
  • 1 large apple, peeled, cored and diced(small)
  • 2  tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
  • 12 wonton wrappers
For the Icing
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon 2% milk
  1. Preheat the oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. In a small pot, cook the apple with 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon for about 5 minutes, or until soft.
  3. Place 12 wrappers on the counter and divide the apple mixture among them.
  4. Use a little water around the edges of the wrappers, then fold them into a triangle. Press along the edges to seal them. Mine weren't perfect! Spray both sides with cooking spray and place on the prepared baking sheet. You could also melt butter and brush them with it.
  5. Combine remaining teaspoon of sugar with 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and sprinkle over the turnovers.
  6. Bake for 6 minutes or until they start to turn golden.
  7. Let them sit for 5 minutes to cool a bit while you prepare the icing.
  8. To make the icing, simply mix the powdered sugar together with the milk until smooth. Drizzle over the slightly cooled turnovers. Serve fresh so they don't become soggy.
