Little Lemon Pound Cake

Hi All!

Here is a truly wonderful lemony recipe!! This one is not one of Grandmas, but we found this on a great blog from Southern Frugal! Phyllis Stokes is a great cook and we enjoyed this little lemon pound cake. It’s luscious and easy to make!

Ingredients:

1 Cup Butter

1 2/3 cups sugar

2 cups sifted flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

5 large eggs

Juice and rind of one lemon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grease and Flour one loaf baking pan 9X5

Cream softened butter, sugar and beat slightly. Then add salt. Beat in each egg one at a time but only enough to mix. Do not over beat. Once all the eggs are added then beat over all for about a minute.

Add sifted flour and fold it in with your spatula.

Last add the juice and rind of one lemon and mix with the hand mixer for a little bit taking care to not over mix.

Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes. Our baking time was nearly 65 minutes.

We learned of this great tasting recipe from http://www.southernfrugal.com

Strawberry Cobbler

SCOBBLER!

Hi Everyone!!

Summertime picnics at Labor Day meant cobblers for the family! My Grandma loved to make cobblers using the fruits available all summer long. Labor Day brings back fond memories of strawberry shortcake, cobbler and ice cream! We would also make the cobbler using blueberries and fresh peaches!

Pudge has been asking for cobbler and so I made him a nice Strawberry cobbler for our Labor Day picnic just like Grandma did!

It is a very simple recipe and very very decadent!

Here you go!

Ingredients:

1 stick of butter
1 beaten egg
1 cup of 2% milk
1 cup of flour
1 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 quarts of fruit your choice
1/2 package of cream cheese

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter and pour the melted butter into a 9 x 13 glass baking dish. In a bowl mix the beaten egg, milk, flour sugar, baking powder and salt. Next, pour the batter into the baking dish directly over the melted butter.

Add the fruit in a single layer. Place pats of sliced cream cheese on top of the fruit. and bake for 45 minutes. Depending on your location and oven you may need less or more baking time, but essentially you want the top to be a nice golden brown and the sides will rise and have some bubbling to it.

This is especially delicious with a dollop of freshly whipped cream or ice cream on top!!

Enjoy!
