Lemon Pound Cake

  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup butter 2 sticks
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • 5 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup sour cream or greek yogurt
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Strawberry Glaze

  • 2.5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • 1/2 cup strawberries fresh & mashed up


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F
  • In a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Add in lemon extract and vanilla and mix 20 seconds.
  • Add lightly beaten eggs, sour cream, and lemon juice and zest. Mix until incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet.
  • Pour into 2 disposable baking loaf pans (7 x 2.5 x 1.5)
  • Bake for 45-60 minutes until edges are golden brown, and a butter knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let cook for 20 minutes on a cooling rack.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the glaze for the top by mixing together the ingredients in a bowl. Adjust thickness by adding additional powdered sugar until you get to desired rate.
  • Once bread is cooled, spread glaze evenly over the top of both loaves.
