I have read every single review and have to say that I can't wait to try this recipe. It sounds so delicious. And I love the idea of possibly using lemon extract for a lemon pound cake. Will make the original recipe first, then maybe try to use lemon extract. I'll make some very happy family members! ! Thank you for your recipe and for everyone else who commented with useful help.
