Hello dear friends. Since it’s Thursday, the beginning of the weekend for some of us, I want to slowly introduce it by chatting a little bit about my love for baking desserts. With so many variations of cakes to make, I must admit anything lemon-flavored will always be at the very top of my culinary endeavors. Pound for pound this lemon bundt cake will have you running, not to burn off the calories but for seconds. I kid you not!
[yumprint-recipe id=’31’]As I sit and write this post I find myself torn from one, laughing and two, feeling a bit guilty. As you already know I’ve recently started my workout routine. So far I’m doing pretty good just getting my butt to the gym. However, once I get home I feel like I’m ready to swallow a cow! Anybody else ever feel that way after an intense workout? Anyway, yesterday when I got home I decided to create this deliciousness. I must say, I’m not entirely feeling guilty…
Slightly denser than most cakes but equally moist, this lemon pound cake is incredibly easy to make. You can vary the main flavor simply by choosing another citrus, like oranges or adding vanilla extract or almond extract instead for a more traditional flavor. For a simple glaze just mix the sugar with milk. Just as the name suggests, pound cakes are made with a pound each of flour, butter, eggs and sugar. But don’t let that ratio scare you from making this awesome treat! Whether as an early morning treat with your favorite cup of jo or for your late afternoon tea session this cake is fantastic.
