Notice that there is no leavening in the recipe—the carbonated soda does the job!

Made for PAC, Spring 2007 ~ What a subtle taste there is to this pound cake! Easy to put together, too! Instead of dusting with powdered sugar, when it was served, I topped each slice with about one tablespoon of lemon curd & then a very little dusting with the sugar! It was great! Thanks for posting the recipe!
