Lemon and nuts bundt cake

Before making this cake I would never have imagined that lemon and walnuts would make such a perfect and smooth combination, but that’s right, this is such a juicy sponge cake that has just entered the list of recipes that I do the most.

Here I explain the recipe, of course, can be made in any mold for sponge cake.


4 eggs

300 gr of sugar

15 gr of baking powder

1 pinch of salt

The zest of two lemons

The juice of a lemon and a half

1 trickle of vanilla extract

150 gr of fine chopped nuts (I chopped them with a food processor)

300 ml of milk

200 gr of butter


In a bowl, beat the eggs with a kitchen robot or hand mixer until they are pale, then, slowly add the sugar and continue beating until you get a frothy cream.

Add the vanilla extract, the lemon zest and the lemon juice.

Now add the sifted flour together with the yeast, the pinch of salt, and the chopped nuts, mix at low speed.

Heat the milk in a separate bowl without reaching the boiling point and add the butter, stir until melted, add to the rest of the ingredients slowly and beat until everything is well integrated.

Pour the mixture into the previously greased mold and take it to the oven, which must be preheated to 180 ° C, for 30 minutes or until the stick comes out almost clean.

It is very soft and juicy cake very delicious, very nice. Enjoy!

Apple pie

My mother recently found this recipe that a friend had written for me a few years ago. So nice to see her recipe again! at the time I thought it would be a good Christmas recipe, here goes just as she taught  me:


For the dough:

250 gr of flour

150 gr of butter

125 gr of sugar

1 beaten egg

lemon zest

pinch of salt

For the filling:

500 gr of reinetas apples

50 gr of sugar

1 envelope of custard

ground cinnamon



In a bowl put the flour, the butter, sugar, salt, grated lemon and half of the egg together. With two knives cut the butter into small pieces, then knead with your fingers until you get a good dough.

Grease the mold (20 cm) and line it with 2/3 of the dough, put it in the fridge for 30 minutes, like the rest of the dough.

Peel and cut the apples into thin slices, sprinkle with the sugar, cinnamon, the envelope of custard and mix everything well, also add the raisins.

Pour the filling into the mold and distribute well until it covers the entire surface, with the rest of the dough make the decoration. You can make strips in the form of grid, like the classic apple pie, in this case, to give a more festive touch I have chosen to shape the dough with cookie cutters and place it beautifully on top.

To finish, paint with the leftover egg. Take to the oven at 180ºC for about 45 minutes. Served with vanilla ice cream takes it to another level.

Bon Appetite!

Happy Holidays!
