Cooking Recipes Catalogue

A moist and dense pound cake with a hint of lemon flavoring. Serve with fresh fruit and ice cream.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating very well after each. Stir in the lemon extract and vanilla. Beat in the flour alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 75 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool, then drizzle with lemon glaze.
  • To make the lemon glaze: Put the confectioners' sugar into a small bowl. Mix in lemon juice, a teaspoon at a time, until desired drizzling consistency is achieved.
