LEMON POUND CAKE - yummy

I made this Lemon Pound Cake yesterday and it was super delicious!!!!  I still have a fridge drawer full of lemons the size of grapefruit which our neighbor gave me from her tree.  So, I will be making it again for sure.  I broke down and bought a lemon juicer (hand) today and a zester to make my job a little easier.



  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs, room temp
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • zest of one lemon
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
DIRECTIONS
  • Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9 x 5 loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • In a medium bowl, combine eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla extract, lemon extract and lemon juice with a mixer until blended.
  • Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and blend until smooth. Add oil and lemon zest and mix well.
  • Pour into loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. (It took an hour in my oven). Remove from oven and pour glaze over it, then cool in pan on a rack.
  • Glaze – whisk to combine
