Lemon Pound Cake

Lemon Pound Cake

Flavoured with lemon juice, this lemon pound cake is the ultimate dessert for lemon lovers.


For the cake

3 cups all-purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup and levelled-off with a knife

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup buttermilk (low fat is fine)

2 tablespoons grated lemon zest, packed

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened

2-1/4 cups granulated sugar, plus more for the pan

3 large eggs

For the syrup

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1-1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

For the glaze

1 cup confectioners' sugar

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


Preheat the broiler to 325°F and set a stove rack in the center position. 

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, heating pop and salt. Put away. 

In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, lemon zing and lemon juice. Put away. 

In the bowl of an electric blender fitted with the oar connection (or mixers), cream the margarine and sugar on medium speed until light and feathery, 3 to 4 minutes. Scratch down the sides of the bowl, then, at that point, beat in the eggs each in turn, beating great after every expansion. Scratch down the sides of the bowl once more. 

With the blender on low speed, beat in one-fourth of the flour combination, then, at that point, 33% of the buttermilk blend. Beat in one more quarter of the flour, then, at that point, one more third of the buttermilk blend. Rehash with one more quarter of the flour and the leftover buttermilk combination. At long last, beat in the leftover flour combination. Scratch down the sides of the bowl, and give a fast blend to ensure the entirety of the fixings are all around joined. 

(See note beneath prior to finishing this progression.) Thoroughly oil a 10-inch Bundt skillet with nonstick cooking shower or vegetable shortening, trying to get into every one of the fissure. Coat the lubed container liberally with granulated sugar, ensuring the whole surface of the skillet is equitably covered. 

Spoon the thick player into the pre-arranged Bundt skillet and smooth with an elastic spatula. Prepare for 65 to 75 minutes, or until the cake is brilliant and an analyzer confesses all. 

Set the cake on a cooling rack. Painstakingly run an offset spatula or table blade around the edges of your dish, between the skillet and the cake, to relax the cake from the container (remember the middle cylinder). Cool the cake in the search for gold minutes. (Set a clock since, supposing that it stays in the dish excessively long, it might stick.) 

In the interim, make the syrup. Join the water and sugar in a pot and heat to the point of boiling. Eliminate from the warmth and mix in the lemon juice. 

Transform the warm cake onto a rack. Slip an enormous piece of material paper, aluminum foil, or paper towels under the rack for simple tidy up. Steadily brush the hot syrup over the cake, allowing it to absorb (a little syrup will trickle off, yet make an effort not to surge so that a large portion of it is retained). Permit the cake to cool totally, around 60 minutes. 

At the point when the cake is cool, cautiously move it to a serving platter. 

To make the coating: in a medium bowl, whisk together the confectioners' sugar and lemon juice. Add more confectioners' sugar or lemon juice as important to make a thick however pourable coating (it ought to be somewhat thicker than you'd might suspect, about the consistency of molasses or nectar). Spoon the frosting over the highest point of the cake, allowing it to dribble down the sides.
