I took inspiration for this from lemon ricotta pancakes - and if you’ve never added ricotta to a pancake recipe you don’t know what you’re missing. Ricotta, just like yogurt adds moisture to a bread or cake recipe ricotta however, has a lighter flavor and allows the lemon and thyme to shine through in this poundcake. It will work perfectly as a dessert or an addition to your afternoon tea. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
I happened upon a recipe for Italian Water Cake and was intrugued. I had never heard of a water cake before so I dove into the recipe and loved the idea, espcially now that we are all social distancing and trying to make use of what we have at home rather than going out on a shopping trip. I researched and read a couple different recipes before I decided to make one of my own. I really loved the simplicity of the recipes and the plus that I could keep it in my repertoire for vegan friends in the future.
The summer months will be rolling in soon and we all know what means. Backyards up and down the country will become the host to numerous BBQ’s on the weekends with hosts and guests all enjoying some great food and refreshing drinks. However, for the latter, it doesn’t always have to be cold beer. Why not try something a little different by adding some popular cocktails for your guests to drink?
