This is a light as a feather pound cake. It is the lightest in texture pound cake I have ever tasted. I didn't have any lemon extract so used the 'real thing' instead. (zest from one lemon and equivalent teaspoons of fresh lemon juice instead). We really like the taste of lemon glaze over our lemon cakes...but for those who prefer not...this is a nice alternative. Made for PAC Spring 2012.
