9 Delicious Lemon Recipes

From the zest to the juice, lemons are used in cooking, baking, and beverages. They add their own bright flavor to foods, but they also help to bring out the flavor of other ingredients. Lemons should be stored in the refrigerator, but keep in mind that a lemon at room temperature will yield more juice than one that is cold.

These 9 delicious lemon recipes might inspire you to try the fruit in a new way.

Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding

While my family doesn’t suffer from food allergies, many of my friends do. Since we have people over frequently I try to find recipes that everyone can enjoy regardless of their dietary restrictions.

One easy way to allow your dairy free friends to enjoy delicious desserts is to swap your regular milk with Silk Soymilk. Silk Soymilk has 8 grams of protein and no cholesterol.

I’ve been replacing milk with Silk Soymilk in some of our favorite desserts and no one has noticed the difference, in fact they think it tastes better!

Our favorite homemade pudding recipe can be easily made with Silk making it a delicious gluten-free, dairy-free dessert everyone can enjoy. Our recipe doesn’t have eggs in it either, which makes this dessert super allergy friendly.

Everyone who has tried this recipe cannot believe how easy it is to make homemade pudding! This makes a great gift too, just put the dry ingredients in a small mason jar and give it as a gift during the holidays.

Now that berries are in season, this is a great time to make trifles using homemade pudding. It tastes so much better than the pudding from the box and you can make it allergy friendly too! Trifles are my absolute favorite summer dessert, so delicious on a hot day!

Serves: 12
 
Ingredients
Wet Ingredients
  • ½ cup plain yogurt (I used coconut milk yogurt) or sour cream
  • ½ cup light olive oil, avocado oil, etc.
  • 1 cup organic cane sugar (I used part stevia)
  • 2 eggs (an egg replacer should work well too)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Dry Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup brown rice flour
  • ½ cup sorghum flour
  • ½ cup tapioca flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon guar or xanthum gum OR 2 teaspoons gelatin
Add In
  • 1½ cups fresh raspberries (or other berry, chopped if large)
Streusel Topping (optional)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice or sorghum flour
  • 1 tablespoon solid fat (butter, coconut oil, palm shortening)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan.
  2. In the bowl of a mixer, beat the wet ingredients.
  3. With the mixer on low, sprinkle in the baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Then continue with the flours.
  4. Gently fold in the raspberries.
  5. Distribute batter evenly in the greased muffin tin.
  6. In a small bowl, place all the streusel ingredients.
  7. Using a pastry cutter, fork, or table knives, cut the fat into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the muffins.
  8. Place in a preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of one muffin comes out clean.
Notes
If you use frozen fruit, you will need to bake the muffins longer.

Not gluten free? You can substitute 1½ cups regular flour for the gluten-free flours and gum.

Star Wars Cake

I am forever indebted to Chef Max and Fish Mama for this cake. After discussing my sliding castle cake last week on Twitter, Chef Max gave me two excellent cake decorating tips, straws and cold.

Apparently people who decorate cakes more often than the 7 times a year (like me) use straws to keep gravity from wrecking their cakes, who knew?

I found the idea for this Star Wars cake in Fish Mama’s eBook Pretty Cook Cakes. My son looked over this book about a hundred times and finally decided on the Star Wars cake for his 7th birthday.

This Star Wars cake is so easy to make, using canned frosting and pans you already have in your house.

This cake was so easy to make, I couldn’t believe it when I finished it in under an hour. The best part about it is that you use canned frosting! I love my butter cream frosting, but with everything going on around here, canned frosting was a life saver!

My cake decorating confidence has been restored and my soon to be seven year-old is already in love with his cake.

Super easy Star Wars cake

This cake uses three mini muffin loaf pans, one round pan, and one cake cooked in a cereal bowl. The rocks are candy and I used red frosting in a tub that you can find in the baking aisle for the lava.

Easy homemade Star Wars cake

The nice thing about this cake is that you don’t want your frosting smooth, so even a child could make this cake with great results! In fact, my kids helped make most of this Star Wars cake.
