Lemon Glazed Pound Cake

Lemon Glazed Pound Cake created by Natalie F.

I found this recipe on another recipe site. I've changed a few things to suit our tastes. This cake tastes wonderful, but if you can let it set for a day, the lemon flavor really comes out!

    In the process of making this cake for the 1st time. Wondering if I can also use almond extract?

    I made this pound cake today! It was heavy, putting it into the bunt pan, but beautiful when I plated it! I made a lemon glaze, which my son loved. I did. not take a pic, but will the next time. I liked reading tweaks that others made, and will try the lemon, orange idea for a glaze or the limoncello addition. Very great recipe!! ????????

    I'm wondering what the consistency of the batter should be. Mine definitely didn't POUR into the pan. More like I had to guide it in with a spatula.

    I use this recipe again and again, the only substitution I have made is 1. using lime peel and juice 2. using a lemon-lime combo peel and juice or 3. using orange peel and juice. This is the closest recipe I have found to the one my mother used to make except she always made pound cake in a loaf tin. A tube tin makes it far better.
