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.

This was a great cake. Closer to a cake than poundcake, but then again it didn't have a pound of butter in it either. I was looking for an easy recipe for a Lemon-Scented Mascarpone Trifle I wanted to make, and didn't want to use store-bought pound cake. This was the quick-n-easy recipe! I upped the lemon juice to 2 tablespoons and used 1/4 tsp. lemon oil for extra citrus! I followed the directions, just varying by creaming room temperature (not melted) butter and the sugar. Then adding the room temperature eggs one at a time...mixing until they were incorporated. Then I combined the flour, salt and baking powder and slowly added it alternately with the 1/2 cup milk, beginning and ending with the flour and mixing only until things were incorporated. No beating. Mine baked in a 9x5 loaf pan in 50 minutes. Delicious! Thanks for a fast and easy recipe.

My husband and daughter love starbucks lemon loaf and I had tried another recipe, it was okay. They loved this one, very easy to make. I've made 2 in 2 days, and will probably have to make another one before Wednesday. I forgot to add that I decreased the milk amt and added more lemon juice, both by 1/4 cup.

Nice and easy! As others, I added more lemon, and a touch of cinnamon, it turned out great and easy to decorate :)

This pound cake is DELICIOUS!!! I had some extra lemons I needed to use and am sure glad I came across this recipe. I like others doubled the amount of the lemon juice, used the zest of 2 lemons and I also used buttermilk. I also added the almond extract. The texture is so light and airy. This will definately be my go to dessert recipe when I need something quick and easy. Thanks so much for posting!!

Absolutely delicious! I used the juice and grated rind of one lemon and only 1/4 cup of milk. Lovely texture and lovely lemon flavor.

Excellent and easy to make! I followed a lot of the reviews and doubled the lemon in the batter. That along with the glaze, we found it to be the perfect amount of lemon flavoring! Went excellent with sliced strawberries. Great recipe!
