I love Lemon. I’m totally a big fan. And I love pound cake. So together – heavenly!! I’ve been making this recipe for years! I first found it in the first few years of our marriage and I’ve been making it ever since. It’s just a great all around easy cake. A pound cake is a kind cake that has been around forever! It is defined as a rich cake containing a pound, or equal weights, of each chief ingredient, typically flour, butter, and sugar. Not all pound cakes nowadays stick to the formula.
I’ve made this cake so many times as it’s one of my very favorites. It’s lovely all on it’s own. Or it’s lovely in a great trifle. Or it’s great with some fresh fruit and whipped cream on the side. The last time I made it I doubled it and my kids ate a loaf and a half when they first got home from school. And I had to stop them from eating more!
The Barefoot Contessa has been one of my favorite recipe sources for a long time! I love love love her stuff! I collect her cookbooks. I’m just missing one!
If you like lemon at ALL, I promise you’ll love it!
