Lemon Pound Cake


One of my favorite spring time taste treats is a lemon pound cake. The recipe is from a Barefoot Contessa cookbook (as Ina would say, "how good is that?").

Each Easter I make several small loaves to give as small Easter gifts to a few friends. (mini loaf pans are a good thing!) Each loaf is glazed with a lemon simple syrup and a lemon glaze (lemon juice and confectioners sugar). They'll make you pucker for sure!

The freshness of the lemon just welcomes spring and reminds you of the warmer days ahead.
