Top Review by Sydney Mike

I'm all for the great taste of lemon ANYTHING & especially when it comes to a pound cake like this one ~ LOTS OF WONDERFUL LEMONY FLAVOR here! This is another one of those recipe I made to see how it might do during the up-coming winter holidays, & it definitely passes the test! I'll be making this one several times again even before the end of the year! [Made & reviewed for one of the co-hosts of Pick A Chef]
