REC - Glazed Lemon Pound Cake

I made this cake today. This recipe is one of my favorites.



Glazed Lemon Pound Cake

CAKE

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 Tablespoon grated lemon peel
3 cups all purpose or unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup milk

GLAZE

1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter

Heat oven to 350. Generously spray 12-cup bundt pan with Pam. In large bowl, combine 1 cup butter and 2 cups sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in lemon peel. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Add flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and milk; beat low speed until smooth. Spoon batter into sprayed pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes. Invert cake onto serving plate.

Meanwhile, in small non-aluminum saucepan, combine 1/3 cup sugar, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons butter. Heat over medium heat until butter melts, stirring occasionally. With long-tined fork or skewer, liberally prick top and sides of cake. Brush warm glaze over cake, allowing glaze to soak into cake. Cool 1 hours or until completely cooled. 16 servings

HIGH ALTITUDE

Increase flour to 3 cups. Bake as directed above.

Copying! WOW! I love pound cake and until now my orange cornmeal one was the hit around here. I think this one just (forgive the pun) took the cake though.

Thanks, I took the cake to work yesterday and there was only a couple of slices left this morning.

I love to cook, but don't need to eat all that stuff myself. Since I am single, I take it to work. I don't think they mind, at all!! You would think that all those guys have never had homemade goods before. The guys sure like to eat!! The other day they were planning BBQ's for next summer.

My brother made chicken soup the other day and brought me some. It was very nice to be on the receiving end. :)

Sierra, I made your pound cake yesterday afternoon & it is wonderful!! It really took care of my lemon craving yesterday. I was so anxious for it to be done that I cut a piece while it was still warm. Thanks for posting this!!
