[Example] Lemon Pound Cake

May 19, 2022

When life gives you lemons, drop everything and make this cake. It's super moist and flavorful, some people might even say life-changing. I have it for breakfast, with tea, as a dessert, basically any time I can make an excuse to eat it.
8 servings


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder

  3. Using an electric mixer, cream together butter, shortening and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating until well blended after each one.

  4. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended. Mix in lemon juice and zest.
