READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Chef Viola MacIsaac

The taste of Cinnamon for those who love cinnamon. My favorite pound cake I alway double this recipe, I also make them in muffin pan's and mini loaf pans, but if you put this in a standered loaf pan it will make 2 loafs when the recipe is doubled. Enjoy.

Lemon zest and sour cream won my vote! And cinnamon to boot! What's not to like? Only change I made was to use the juice from the lemon in the topping. Just gave it that extra zip. Thnx for posting, Chef Viola. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
