Lemon Pound Cake

I know it's time for the menu but my knack for forgetfulness is front & center this Monday so it might be a tad late.

Till then, feel free to enjoy this recipe from Lea Ann (basically my foodie go-to girl). It could easily serve as breakfast, lunch, snack & dinner.

Not that I know from experience or anything.

Lemon Pound Cake

3 cups flour
3 cups sugar
1 cup butter
6 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
8 oz sour cream
2 tablespoons lemon extract
*zest of one large lemon

Cream butter & sugar. Add eggs one at a time and beat well. Add vanilla & baking soda. Beat.
Add flour & sour cream alternately. Add lemon extract & zest.

300 degrees for 1 1/2 hours+ until the top is golden & wooden pick comes out clean.

Glaze with powdered sugar and fresh lemon juice (you could bring about a dangerous addiction with this combo)
