This has a great fresh lemon taste. Excellent for spring picnics. Or maybe even a potluck.

Unlike some lemon cakes, this recipe has a very lovely, light lemon flavor... just enough to satisfy. The icing glaze tops it off with just the right amount of sweetness, too. Perfect for a Spring afternoon. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Lemon Lovers Pound Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in lemon juice, peel and extract. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream. Beat just until combined.
  2. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  3. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. For icing, in a small mixing bowl, beat the sour cream and butter until blended. Gradually add confectioners sugar. Beat in lemon juice and peel. Drizzle over the cake. Store in the refrigerator.
