I drizzled some limoncello over the top in lieu of the sugary glaze. We did like this, though the hour was probably a bit too long. Next time, I'd put a TB of limoncello in the batter, too. Nice with fruit on top (berries & pineapple chunks).
Moist and delicious!! I put extra lemon juice in the icing for more lemon flavor.
After reading all the comments, I added a teaspoon of lemon extract to the batter, let it cook for 40 minutes and poked a lot of holes to let the glaze get Inside (while the cake was still in the pan). It gave a delicious, lemony moist cake!
This recipe has no taste. Even with the glaze, you get just a hint of lemon at the top. Disappointing.
Made this as muffins, minus the icing, since the fam had no interest in waiting for them to cool! Very nice.
Absolutely delicious! The cake had a very tender texture. The only change I made was to use 1/4 cup lemon juice and 5 tablespoons of sugar for the glaze, which I poured over the cake while it was still in the pan but had cooled about 5 minutes. The lovely lemon syrup soaked in, giving it a nice lemon flavor. I baked this cake in a small, 6-cup bundt pan, so it looked beautiful, too!
delicious! use applesauce in place of the butter (for low-fat version) and add additional 2 Tbsp. melted butter for flavor; also use 1 cup whole wheat flour in place of 1 cup all-purpose. this recipe makes great morning muffins!
This was good right out of the oven, but after a day it was very dry. I microwaved it for 15 seconds, which helped a bit but not too much. Mine was done in 40 minutes, so be sure to check on it while it's cooking.
I'd give this 4.5 stars. It was excellent, however, like others, I didn't think it had enough lemon flavor and I did add a bit more zest than the recipe called for. Next time I make it (and I WILL be making it again), I'll add even more zest and some lemon juice to the batter and see what happens....
Made recipe as shown, but baked only 50 minutes and could even go down to 45 minutes I believe. The cake was tasty, but even with the lemon glaze, lacked the lemon flavor it should have. Will try more zest next time.
Made the cake with wheat flour, added an extra tbsp poppy seeds, and extra lemon peel. Made the icing - did NOT like it, maybe my powdered sugar was off, so instead I microwaved 1/4 c lemon juice with 1/2 c granulated sugar to make a simply syrup, spooned 2 tsp over each slice. Delicious!
Moist and wonderful lemon pound cake.
