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!

Christmas Baking Round-up

MERRY CHRISTMAS 

It's been a few years since I did any serious Christmas baking. The main reason being that most of the treats are just not good for you. There's a lot of butter and sugar involved.

This year I took some vacation days the week before Christmas, and I was in the baking mood. I chose a few of my favourite recipes to make, and then packaged most of it up to give to family and friends. 

Here's my 2016 round-up.


Small Batch Brown Sugar Cookies (I added chocolate chips)
