Lemon Pound Cake

This bright and light cake goes great with fresh strawberries and blueberries.  It uses a loaf pan instead of the traditional bundt pan.

Step 5:

Bake at 325 degrees in well greased loaf pan for 1 hour – or until golden brown.  I like to sprinkle a little bit of sugar on the inside of the pan to keep it from sticking and add a little extra sweetness to the cake.

Step 6:

Combine lemon juice and sugar and pour over warm cake.  Poke holes in the cake with a toothpick so all of the lemony goodness fills the cake.
