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.

Most mornings I eat an avocado on toast, topped with other good things. That's my favourite breakfast at the moment.

Avocados may have fat in them, but it's the good kind, and unlike fries, avocados also provide you with other nutrients that your body needs to function. Eat avocados!

Here are some links if you want to learn more about why avocados are good for you.
Can we look at some pictures of toast now?

Above: Sometimes you can just smear some guacamole on your toast.

Above: Hummus, red pepper spread, tomatoes, avocado, olives and sprouts.

Above: Sometimes I have toast with nut butters. Top them with fruit! Pomegranates and strawberries are nice. I also like raspberries. They are all a nice little sour contrast to the sweet nut butter.

Above: Nut butters are also good with nuts, bananas, cacao nibs, honey and bee pollen.

Above: You could also add dried fruits. Here we have cranberries and goji berries.

Above: Just honey with nuts and bee pollen. Use raw honey if possible.
It'll melt nicely on warm toast like this. If you're vegan, this one isn't for you.

Above: Elvis would have loved this. PB and B.

Above: You can also use seed butters. This is pumpkin seed butter and banana.
