Recipe is incredibly easy. It contains simple ingredients that you should already
have on hand.
Granulated sugar, butter, fresh lemon juice, eggs, all-purpose flour, lemon zest
Baking powder, salt, sour cream
Heat oven to 350°F. Grease with shortening 9x5-inch loaf pan; lightly flour.
In large bowl, beat granulated sugar and softened butter with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice and the eggs; beat until well mixed. Beat in remaining cake ingredients on medium speed 1 to 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally, until well mixed. Pour evenly into pan.
Bake 1 hour to 1 hour 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes. Turn upside down onto cooling rack. Cool completely, about 2 hours.
In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and lemon juice, 1 teaspoon at a time, until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over cake.
For a different look, cut your loaf into wedges instead of traditional slices.
Cake will stay moist stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
To freeze pound cake, wrap cooled cake without icing in heavy-duty foil, then place in resealable food-storage plastic bag. Thaw at room temperature. Drizzle with icing before serving.
If you have leftover cake, you can seal individual slices inside sandwich-size food-storage plastic bags. Defrost a slice whenever you need a quick treat!
