This is a fabulous summer dessert. The mint in the cake batter and in the whipping cream along with lemon curd gives it extra flavor. I followed the cake recipe exactly and it came out perfect. The 2 cups of whipping cream is a lot so would cut down on that amount to have with the cake but other than that Perfecto - def. a keeper for a summer dessert.
A twist to whipped cream, with the lemon curd.
Wow! What a hit. This was also my first pound cake and it was so light and the lemon and mint went wonderful together. I thought the cream was a little too sweet and might omit the sugar or only use half of the lemon curd. Personal taste because everyone loved it.
I made this for Easter dessert last year and it was a big hit. It was easy to make and tasted absolutely delicious. I had never made a pound cake until this one. It would be great for a fancy dinner or a simple company dessert.
