Lucky

lemon pound cake

I feel lucky that I have a hobby that makes other people happy too. My mom was realllly craving my lemon pound cake and has been asking for it for quite some time. I made it for her, and it made her very happy! What a great feeling! The thing I love to do is not just for me, it's for sharing with those around me. I'm so lucky.

I've made this pound cake before, and the recipe is here. But just to make it a TINY WINY bit different, I added some tangerine juice/zest. It didn't make much of a difference, but it did in my mind! I also used two mini loaf pans instead of one, which is always more fun! Anything miniature is fun. :) I was once again impressed by the recipe, though. The cake is so soft and has a perfect density from the cream cheese. It's phenomenal right out of the oven and delicious the day after too! I love this pound cake, and no wonder my mom craves it time to time. :D

  10. Hi Tara

    How much tangerine zest and juice did you use in the lemon pound cake recipe.

  11. Yummm this looks delicious! Do you think it would be ok in cupcake form with lemon curd, or is that overdoing the lemon factor?
