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!

Celery - Cucumber - Ginger - Pineapple - Lemon Juice

This juice is good, but if you don't like celery, you probably won't like this juice. You can add the celery last, and taste it as you go along.

As you can see from the image below, the Hurom is a great juicer and leaves you with little pulp. The pulp that is left is very dry. This is such a huge difference from my last juicer, which was centrifugal. It left a very wet pulp, and the juice was grainy.

The Hurom does have a smaller chute, so you need to cut your fruit and veg to fit. 

I stored this juice in smaller bottles so I could take it to work. It's also better this way so that you don't expose a large amount of juice to air, by opening and closing a bigger bottle.
