Lemon Pound Cake

A luscious lemony pound cake would be a perfect dessert to serve for your Easter guests. Lemon always brings with it a sense of freshness and lightness. This cake uses any 12 cup tube pan, and utilizes fresh grated lemon peel in the cake, and the cake is topped off with a yummy lemon glaze. Two small lemons will do quite nicely for the grated rind and the juice for the glaze. An added bonus? A lovely scent of lemon as you grate the rind. Just make sure you bring everything to room temperature before you begin. You can also decorate this cake any way you like, from a simple dusting of powdered sugar to filling the centre hole with flowers (use silk or non-poisonous ones) like pansies or violets for example. It will make a beautiful centrepiece for your table, too!


1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
4 eggs
1 tbsp grated lemon peel
3 cups all purpose flour
