I could get used to this.
I could get used to the idea of baking a cake once a week! Especially since you have shared so many yummy recipes with me and I really look forward to trying them all!
I made Linda's Lemon Pound Cake today for Sunday dinner. Linda is such a sweetie - she reads my blog and has often generously shared her personal recipes with me.
And this one is a winner! It was easy to make, easy to bake, and yes easy to take! ;-) I took some slices to my sister's house and gave some to my neighbors too. I think THAT is my favorite part about baking - the sharing with others. I am sure you agree.
Here is Linda's recipe:
Lemon Pound Cake
3 cups sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks butter
1/2 cup crisco
Cream above ingredients together.
Beat in 5 eggs one at a time to above ingredients.
2 T lemon extract
1 cup milk
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
*Alternate flour and milk
Pour batter into a greased and floured bundt pan
Bake 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean @ 325 degrees
Mix together with mixer:
1/2 stick butter
Juice and lemon zest from 2 lemons
1 box of powdered sugar
Spread over cooled cake.
Thank you so much Linda! This was absolutely delicious! Everyone loved it and your recipe will now go in our family recipe box. And I will think of you every time I make it!
