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!

Instant Pot Chicken Soup

Happy September!

Summer is winding down so it’s time for IP chicken soup.

Instant Pot Chicken Soup

  • 2 chicken legs (drumstick and thigh), skinless with bone in
  • 4 large carrots, peeled
  • I large onion, peeled and quartered
  • 2 celery stalks
  • Garlic (optional - leaves a strong flavour in the broth)
  • water
  • noodles
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Maggi liquid seasoning
  1. Add all ingredients from chicken to garlic to your Instant Pot (mine is a 6 quart - I have this one) and top up to the fill line with filtered water.
  2. Cook on high pressure for 90 minutes. Allow to release naturally for 15 minutes and then do a quick release until the pin drops.
  3. I strained mine into a pot because that’s where I like to store it in the fridge, but you can just pick out the cooked veggies and chicken and simmer the soup right in your IP.
  4. Add noodles, salt and pepper to the simmering broth. You can also add some Maggi liquid seasoning or bouillon for extra flavour.  Shred the cooked chicken and add it to the pot.
  5. Frozen veggies are nice in this soup.
