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!

Orange Pineapple Juice

Last week I had a bit of a cold so I went and made my own vitamin C juice. You want to make your own because those store bought juices are pasteurised. There is no benefit to drinking them.

I made 2 batches. The first was just orange and pineapple, and I added lemon and grapefruit to the 2nd batch.

I use a Hurom slow juicer and it's awesome. I love it! It was worth the investment.

The Hurom has a small chute, so I cut my fruit into chunks that would fit. If you have a centrifugal juicer, you will probably have a bigger chute, and there won't be a need to do a lot of prep. You can leave the core in the pineapple as well.

The lemon is optional, but it's a nice touch if you've got a sweet pineapple.
