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!

Banana Oat Cookies

Yep - they look like poop 💩.

We just threw stuff in the blender and hoped for the best.

I assume they will work just as well with a chia or flax egg but I haven't tried.

Banana Oat Cookies

  • 3 very ripe medium size bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 5 pitted dates
  • 1 1/4 cups quick oats
  • 1/2 cup steel cut oats (we ran out of quick)
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Blend the bananas, eggs, vanilla and dates until smooth. Add all the oats, cocoa and baking soda - blend again. You will still see small pieces of oats. It’s fine.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
  4. Drop by the spoonful onto the parchment lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake for about 14 minutes depending on the size of your cookies.
  6. They will puff up but they don’t spread much. They’re ready when they feel firm.
  7. Next time we’ll try adding some peanut butter!
