Semi Lemon Pound Cake

It’s not a true pound cake-but close….

So go pick all those lemon off your neighbor tree and go for this.

It’s good.

Real good.

This one made it’s first appearance on Super Bowl Sunday, wrapped in whipped cream and layered with lemon curd in the middle. The eaters- they were wowed even after the 1 pounds of cheese that was wrapped in cabs and called appetizers. Just days after the first appearance this cake took bunt form and got a luscious coat of lemon glaze for a birthday at work.
