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!

Apple Cinnamon Cake

I adapted this from an apple brownie recipe on Allrecipes.

I cut back the apples by 1 and used brown sugar instead of white. It was delicious!

I read some of the reviews on Allrecipes and some people said it took longer than 35 minutes. I guess if you like them extra crispy and charred, go for it. Otherwise, 35 minutes is enough.

Apple Cinnamon Cake
Makes 16 Servings

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and grease an 8x8 pan.
  2. Whisk melted butter with brown sugar and the egg until fluffy. This won't even take a minute.
  3. Sift in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir with a rubber spatula until well combined. It'll be a bit thick.
  4. Stir in the apples and walnuts. It looks like a lot of apple right? Imagine adding 3 like the original recipe said? It might be a bit much. Spread the batter into the prepared pan.
  5. Bake for 35 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Let the cake cool before cutting into 16 squares.


  1. Yum! This looks delicious! I would also use apple sauce instead of some of the butter to save a couple of calories...
