This was good cake, although not 5 stars good. I used extra lemon peel, even so there wasn't a lot of "lemony" flavor. I was afraid adding much additional lemon juice could affect the recipe badly, so maybe next time I will try some lemon extract. The texture of the cake was not the fine, dense crumb I associate with the perfect pound cake either, more just your basic butter cake. It was a good "at home" dessert, but as is, I think I would have been disappointed serving it to guests or taking it somewhere. I'm going to try the rest of the cake tomorrow with sliced, sugared strawberries. It will be a very good foundation for berries, way better than store bought pound cake or sponge cake.
