Lemon Pound Cake


Here's my quick, weekday, not diet friendly lemon poundcake.

1 vanilla gf cake mix (I like Pamela's)

4 eggs

12 T. cold butter, cut into chunks

1/3 c. water

2 t. oil of lemon (or 2 T. lemon juice)

Zest of one lemon

Put your ingredients in a mixing bowl and whir on low for 30 seconds (the butter will still be lumpy, but the cake mix should be all moist). Bake in a loaf pan at 350 for 60-65 minutes.

I like to glaze mine with a mixture of powdered sugar, lemon juice and rum, but that's just me. :D

Banana Almond Muffins

These are my go-to muffins. Easy, quick, tasty, not to sweet, and I love the texture.


1 1/4 heaping c almond flour

2 T arrowroot powder

1/4 t. baking soda

1/4 t. salt

1/4 c. agave nectar

1 mashed banana

1/4 c. almond butter

2 eggs

Preheat your oven to 350. Mix your dry ingredients in one bowl, mix your wet in another bowl. Add wet to dry and stir. ;-) Grease your muffin tins and fill evenly. Bake for 20 minutes.

Makes 12 muffins.
