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!

Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from Flippin' Delicious
Makes 12-14

  • 1/4 cup soft coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (room temperature)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 5 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)
  1. Combine coconut oil, syrup, vanilla and salt in a bowl. If the coconut oil is hard, place the bowl on top of another bowl with hot water, or microwave in 1 second intervals just until softened. You should be able to mix these ingredients thoroughly. 
  2. Stir in baking soda and flours until well combined. Add chocolate chips. 
  3. Allow to sit for 10 minutes so the liquid can absorb. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment. 
  4. Place the batter onto the pan in walnut size drops. Flatten slightly with your hand as these do not spread much. 
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the centre is firm and he edged are golden. 
  6. Allow to cool completely before eating.
