Lemon Ricotta Poundcake

Amy Freeze


As a sucker for pound cake crust (southerners know what I mean), I have been known to bake a pound cake after the kids have gone to bed, just because I have a craving. This particular pound cake recipe came about one weekend when I didn't have any cream cheese or sour cream in the house, but I did have a container of ricotta. So why not...let's try it. Surprisingly, it turned out great! I added a tart glaze and it was over-the-top great!
