1 1/2 cups
sifted confectioners' sugar
fresh lemon juice
My only change was to leave out the pecans since we were out. This was a wonderful tasting cake, but it was so small! I would definetly double the recipe to fit into a normal bundt/tube pan. It doesn't rise much and barely filled the bottom half of my pan. I also had to add 10 minutes to the cooking time. I would probably bake this again but just double the recipe and really watch the cook time. This is more like 6/8 servings, not 14!!
Icing was way too lemony tasting, will add less lemon juice if I make again
Like others, I eliminated the pecans and baked in a loaf pan. If you bake in a loaf pan, bump up the temp to 350 and cook for an hour.
I wanted a more lemony flavor, so I added a teaspoon of lemon extract, and I also added some cornstarch to the flour to make it cake flour. This is definitely a drier pound cake ... about the texture of a scone. But that's perfect for serving with strawberries and whipped cream, or some other fruit that's been macerated.
I found this recipe trying to replace a lost one. Omitted the nuts which weren't in old recipe and baked in 9-inch Bundt pan (smaller than the usual one). You could use a 9 x 5 loaf pan also. There were 12 generous servings with peaches and whipped cream.
This was the first cake I baked from scratch. It was excellent. However, next time I will try it without the pecans.
This was a really good lemon pound cake. It was really lemoney and My whole family loved it.
If you only have the standard size bundt pan, this is going to come out a strange size. In the end, I thought it was perfect for a tea. If you want a more traditional look, double the recipe or use a loaf pan. I loved the flavor and would definitely make this again.
A very tasty lemony cake enjoyed by all who ate it.And will be made time and time again in our house now great recipe.
