Easy Peasy Perfect Pound Cake

I know I have a few other Pound Cake recipes on this blog and I actually wasn’t going to post this one. But then it came out of the pan so perfect I HAD to share it! Oh, and there’s a fun ingredient in the glaze πŸ˜‰ Also, this isn’t a true pound cake. Pound cake usually has a pound of every ingredient, but this one is about half. I am not feeding an army so this one is perfect. It will last about 2 days in my house.

So, here we go! Let’s make a half pound cake πŸ™‚

What you will need:

Loaf pan, greased

1 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the glaze:

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon Lemon LaCroix (you can also use lemon juice)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees fahrenheit. Beat butter until smooth and creamy. Beat in sugar until smooth and light in color. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Alternate beating in the flour and milk until combined. Beat in vanilla.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Allow to cool a few minutes before inverting.

To make the glaze stir together the ingredients and pour over the warm cake. Cool completely before cutting and serving. Enjoy!

Store covered at room temp.
