I have used this cake for so many different things. Its great if you need something at the last minute. Its always comes out good. It's good just as a pound cake, without the drizzled lemon. We like it for strawberry shortcake.

More like a cake than a traditional pound cake, but it had a good flavor and texture. Especially liked the drizzled lemon/sugar. Don't know how it was at room temperature--it was all gone before it had cooled.
