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! Italian Lemon Cake Adapted from My Recipe Confessions Makes 1 Cake Ingredients For the Cake 3 cups all purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup butter, softened 2 cups sugar 3 large eggs 1/2 cup buttermilk 1/2 cup sour cream 4 tablespoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons lemon zest 1 teaspoon vanilla For the Glaze 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar 5+ tablespoons lemon juice Directions Preheat the oven to 325F.

Raisin Bread Grilled Cheese - All But Gluten

I was going to participate in the Foodie Blogroll promotion for All But Gluten, but my coupons arrived after the posting date. I also had a harder time finding the product than I thought. I tried 2 stores that carry a nice selection of Gluten free and other speciality products and was surprised when I didn't see All But Gluten. I finally managed to find the bread and raisin bread at Walmart. I used one of the coupons and saved the other, because I want to keep looking at other stores and try the brownies!

I decided I would post anyway because I actually really did enjoy the bread. Even if you aren't gluten intolerant, you will still enjoy this bread. It tasted just as good as any other raisin bread that I've tried. I tasted it right out of the bag and it was yummy. You can toast it and eat it with just a bit of butter, or you can do what I did, and make grilled cheese. Yes, raisin bread does go well with cheddar! Just make sure you use a sharp one.

Before we get to the recipe, here's a little information about this wonderful product.

All But Gluten™ products are also dairy-free and Kosher.

Safety, taste and nutrition are the three pillars of the All But Gluten™ brand. “The breads, focaccias, pizza shells and muffins are a source of fibre, and are enriched with vitamins and minerals.” says Shelley Case, registered dietitian, international celiac disease expert and consulting spokesperson for All But Gluten™. “This is an important feature of All But Gluten™ because many gluten-free products on the market are not enriched and often lower in iron, B vitamins and fibre” states Case.

Unlike most gluten-free baked goods, All But Gluten™ can be found in the fresh bakery section, not the frozen section of major Canadian retailers. Consumers following a gluten-free diet really miss delicious baked products and now they can stroll down the aisles that were previously off limits. The All But Gluten ™ brand invites consumers to ‘Rekindle your love of baked goods.’

The line includes Whole Grain Loaf, Cinnamon Raisin Loaf, Sliced White Loaf, Roasted Onion Focaccia, Rosemary Focaccia, Plain Pizza Shells, Carrot Raisin Morning Muffins, Mini Brownies and Coconut Macaroons.

Raisin Bread Grilled Cheese
Makes 1 Sandwich

  • 2 slices All But Gluten raisin bread
  • sharp cheddar cheese
  • butter (optional)
  1. As always, I like to heat my nonstick pan over medium low heat. Low and slow is the way to go with grilled cheese. You want to give the cheese a chance to melt before the bread burns. Don't rush it! Okay?
  2. Place the cheese between the two slices of bread. You can butter your bread if you want, inside and/or out. I don't but my mom does. 
  3. Place the sandwich in the warm pan and let it cook for several minutes, until you see the bottom start to turn golden and the cheese starting to melt. I never timed it, you can tell just by looking at it if it's ready to flip. Repeat for the other side.
  4. Remove it from the pan and let it cool for a minute before cutting it in half.
