Lemon Loaf Cake

"I made this cake purely as an experiment. Wow did it come through! I had been craving a lemon-flavored something for a while and this completely satisfied it. It's sweet, yet retains that delicious tart lemon zing and flavor. My dad loved it."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add the room temperature eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in the sour cream, vanilla, and lemon peel. Beat for an additional 2 minutes. Batter will look curdled. Combine flour, cornstarch, salt, and baking soda in a separate bowl. Pour the flour mixture into the egg mixture, mixing until just incorporated. Pour the batter into a prepared 8x4 inch loaf pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool in the pans for 5 minutes before removing to cool completely on a plate.
  4. To make glaze: Whisk together the lemon juice and powdered sugar. Pour glaze over entire cake and allow cake to cool while the glaze is soaked in.

When I saw that the center was still very wet after the alloted time, I turned the oven down 25 degrees and put tinfoil loosely over the top. Turned out beautifully. Next time, I'll try 45 min-1...

Tasted fine but marking down because of misleading cooking time. I made this twice -- 35 minutes the first time (toothpick seemed dry); 45 minutes the second time. Both times I had to throw out ...

Good, easy recipe,Ihad no sour cream so subbed with milk,doubled lemon peel but think more lemon flavouring would be good. Baking time in a loaf pan took lot longer.

After reading the other reviews here, I used 1/3 rather than 1/2c sour cream (I actually substituted Greek yogurt because it's what I had in the fridge), and I cooked the dough in a 9x5" loaf pa...

Added juice of one lemon to cake batter, omitted the cornstarch, added 3/4 teaspoon baking powder, and cooked 50 minutes - beautiful

I agree about the baking time. I have another lemon pound cake recipe that starts out at 350 x 15 min, then the remaining half-hour or so is at 325. Gonna try that next time. Otherwise, good.

I followed the recipe exactly, even the tiny details like room temp eggs and only mixing one in at a time. The cake turned out pretty dry for a pound cake, and even tho the frosting was awesome,...

Needed to up the baking time by 5-10 minutes, but the toothpick test ensured that I didn't undercook it. Yummy cake!

Also found the baking time to be off, left in the oven for about 50 minutes. POured sugar lemon glaze over the top when removed from the oven. PRetty good, but not enough lemon flavor for me.
