Lemon Pound Cake

Author: Mama Bear Email  | Filed under: cakes with 196 words and 604 views

This is not a traditional pound cake by my definition as it's not very dense, but it is slightly denser than a cake mixes. I don't have a 12" tube or bundt pan so I ended up baking mine in a 10" bundt pan and an 8"x8" pan. This is easy to make and I liked the taste. I think next time I may try just making 2/3 of the batter and bake it in a 13x9 pan (of course adjust the baking times accordingly).

1 c canola oil
6 eggs
1t lemon extract
2-1/2 c sugar
1 c milk
2-1/2 c plus 2 T. flour
1 t baking powder
3/4 t salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 12" tube or bundt pan. In a mixer bowl, combine ingredients one at a time while mixing on low. Increase speed to medium, beat well for 5 minutes. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool 15 minutes, removed from pan. Glaze with lemon glaze or dust with powdered sugar.

Lemon Glaze:
Juice 2 fresh lemons, grate rind of 1 fresh lemon. Add powdered sugar to juice and rind while mixing with a wire whisk until glaze is of desired consistency. Pour over the cake.
