This was a very good pound cake. It was moist and light and had great lemon flavor. Thanks for posting this recipe.
This is a lovely, moist, lemon pound cake with a wonderful texture and great flavor. I will definitely make this again. I did not make the icing for this cake because we prefer our pound cake plain. Thanks for posting it.
My husband loves pound cake and this recipe did not disappoint. I served this to guests and many of them commented on the great lemony flavor. Will make again!
