Iced Lemon Pound Cake

Yum. Lemons. I love you. I Needed this cake in my life right now. It’s sweet, can be eaten for breakfast, and is just so (for lack of a better word) delicious! Easy to make and eat, this pound cake is the perfect treat! I have nothing else to say so…. let’s bake!

What you will need:

9 x 5 inch loaf pan, greased
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon extract
Juice from one lemon
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Zest of one lemon

For the glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a medium bowl, beat together eggs, sugar, butter, both extracts, and lemon juice until well blended. Pour into the dry ingredients and blend until smooth. Add oil and lemon zest and mix until combined.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake for 45-50 minutes. Allow to cool on wire rack before inverting to cool completely.
