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! Italian Lemon Cake Adapted from My Recipe Confessions Makes 1 Cake Ingredients For the Cake 3 cups all purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup butter, softened 2 cups sugar 3 large eggs 1/2 cup buttermilk 1/2 cup sour cream 4 tablespoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons lemon zest 1 teaspoon vanilla For the Glaze 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar 5+ tablespoons lemon juice Directions Preheat the oven to 325F. Grease and flour a bundt or cake p

About Me

About Me

Welcome to Jenny's Cookbook! My name is Jennifer and I'll be your host. 

MANY years ago, I found myself posting pictures (not very good ones) of the food I was making on Facebook. I was using the Facebook albums as a way of keeping pictures and notes on the recipes that I tried and enjoyed. I figured it didn't hurt to share the recipes with my family and friends while I was at it and some of them actually seemed to enjoy it. 

Back then, Facebook had a 200 image limit on their albums. Once I approached the limit I decided I needed a better way to save and share my favourite recipes, so here we are. Now I can share with you, too!

Aside from cooking and baking, I also really enjoy arts and crafts. I love bead embroidery and making things out of newspaper. I've been crafting since I was little and I will NEVER stop. Never!

You will find me on the platforms below.

  3. Hi Jenny ,
