With winter weather setting in, it’s time for a flavorful dessert with a little zing.  Today, I’ll be sharing a simple recipe for Lemon Pound Cake.  With the icing/glaze over the top, it is a great combination of tart and sweet.  Serve a slice with a scoop of lemon or vanilla ice cream.  To make the plate a little more fancy looking, shake some confectioners sugar over the top.  This sounded so good, I’m baking one today.

Lemon Pound Cake

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • lemon glaze (recipe follows)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Butter a 6-cup loaf pan and line with parchment or wax paper.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.  In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment (or using a hand mixer), cream the butter.  Add the sugar and mix.  With the mixer running at low speed, add the eggs one at a time.  Add the vanilla.

Working in alternating batches, and mixing after each addition, add the dry ingredients and lemon juice to the butter mixture.  Mix until smooth.

Pour into the prepared pan and bake until raised in the center and a tester inserted into the center comes out dry, about 60 to 70 minutes.When the cake is done, let it cool in the pan for 15 minutes.  Run a knife around the sides of the pan.  Set a wire rack on a sheet pan with raised edges to catch the glaze and turn the cake out onto the rack.  Peel off the paper.

Using a pastry brush, spread the Lemon Glaze over the top and sides of the cake and allow to soak in.  Repeat the process until all the glaze has been used up, including any glaze that has fallen into the catch pan.  Let cool to room temperature or wrap in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.  The cake should be served at room temperature.  Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Lemon Glaze

In a small bowl, stir together 1/3 cup lemon juice and 1/3 cup sugar or confectioners sugar until the sugar is dissolved.

Enjoy!
