Adhis.....just for you!

Here is the recipe for the Lemon Pound Cake you see pictured above in my header. Adhis has asked for the recipe as have several others so out of the goodness and kindness of my heart........just for you! Cuz I'm nice that way......

Lemon Pound Cake

3 cups flour
3 sticks softened butter (no substitutions--are ya surprised?)
6 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. baking soda
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 Tablespoon grated lemon peel

Lemon Glaze:

3/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 Tablespoon grated lemon peel
powdered sugar (enough to make a glaze-consistency)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift flour and baking soda twice. Set aside.

In a big bowl, blend the butter and sugar, mix well. Add one egg at a time, mixing well after each egg. Then add the 1/2 cup lemon juice and lemon peel.

Add flour and sour cream alternatively to the butter/sugar/egg mixture, ending with the last ingredient being the flour, not the sour cream.

Mix in the vanilla extract.

Grease and flour (I use powdered sugar instead of flour) two 9-inch loaf pans. Bake both of them at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Test for doneness with a knife.

Remove from pans onto a serving platter or platters. While cakes are cooling mix glaze and then slowly pour over the pound cakes making sure the sides get nice and covered as well as the top.

This one will not only make your eyes roll back into your head but a low moan will escape your lips as you put a forkful in your mouth. I promise. I dare ya to try and eat this without making a sound......
