    WOW! I have two lemon verbena plants growing in my garden - the most fabulous plant, by the way. I drink water by the gallon when I add lemon verbena, oranges, limes, and lemons. This cake is fantastic - my family ate two loaves in a matter of days. Great recipe. Thank you for sharing a great way to use my fabulous lemon verbena!

    Perfect! What a very lovely cake. I adore lemon verbena. I made it as written and it was very good. A great pound cake that could stand on it's own. I had to take it to the next level of course ;) I made my own Recipe #305406 the day after I made the cake with what was left of it. I had never made it with a lemon flavored cake before and the flavors were so perfect together! I love when two or more Zaar recipes come together like that. I will be making this again soon! made and Reviewed for Every Day Holiday Tag - Thanks! :)

    Buddha made this for brunch today using lemon zest for the verbena (not an easy item to find around here) The wonderful flavor of lemon still came thru deliciously. We were a bit dissapointed that it did not rise (we halved the recipe to make 1 loaf). We also felt next time we would use melted butter in place of the vegetable oil to add a bit of creaminess to it. We used it to make Recipe #328318 and it was perfect. This is a very moist, lemony pound cake. Thanks for sharing. :)
