Perfect Lemon Pound Cake
I am in search of the perfect lemon pound cake recipe because, if I have to be honest, I am a fool for lemons.
Lemon dishes of any kind, provided the lemon is mixed with sugar. Which means I am not talking about lemon on salmon, for example. I am talking about lemonade, lemon bars, lemon cookies, lemon frosting, etc. Which leads me to my recent obsession with lemon pound cake. I tried to make a lemon cake yesterday and to put it politely, it was awful. I've never purported to be a master baker, just a baker who wants to be a master. I don't understand exactly what baking powder is in relation to baking soda, as an example, nor do I honestly care. I just like when my baking works. Oh don't get me wrong, the lemon cake I made was certainly quite tasty, it just felt like a wet sponge on my tongue as I ate it. Not really what I was going for. So what is my point, you ask?
I think I have found a lemon pound cake recipe with some real promise. I shall be making it post haste and then reporting back with my findings. I will also soon be posting about my Dutch Oven BBQ Ribs and my blueberry crumble cake which was omg so good.
What I'm saying is, be patient a little longer. I'll be back after I try this potentially fabulous recipe.
