This was my first attempt to "sneak" lemon zest into my family's mouths 'cause I love it so. I tweaked a chocolate chip pound cake recipe a friend had given me that the family loves so much. They ended up loving this one just as much. We named it "Take Me Back Lemon Pound Cake" 'cause the flavor is so full of nostalgia.
