I had an abundance of eggs and I wanted a change from my regular pound cake recipe. So glad I found this. It is wonderful! I didn’t have any lemon flavoring so I used vanilla instead and the pound cake is still great. I love the crusty goodness and the moist inside. This would be a great recipe to make and then cut in half and freeze to have on-hand for those unexpected guests. I have some fresh strawberries that might just find themselves adorning a piece of this cake :)

Awesomely tasty! And easy! I subbed vanilla for lemon (didn’t have any) – delicious. Some fresh strawberries are going to adorn a piece tonight. Make one – cut it half – and freeze for a quick and ready dessert.

Awesome taste! I used vanilla instead of lemon because that’s what I had on hand. Amazing taste!

Baked this for my own birthday with the help of my 4-yr old son – and it was FABULOUS! It came out of the pan beautifully (I oiled & floured REALLY well) and was tasty without any toppings. Thanks, Ree!
