Old fashioned recipes are the best in my book...and finding this recipe couldn't come at a more perfect time. I've been trying to decide what type of cake to make for my upcoming birthday and I believe I just found it! It's strange because as a kid I was never much of a fan of lemon, but as I get older I actually crave it. Weird huh? I'm thinking some zest from a Meyer lemon would be perfect with the icing!

I'm a little old lady and I approve this Lemon Pound Cake recipe. This recipe is so simple and straight forward, and full of citrusy lemon flavor, covered with a sugary glaze for the perfect sweet/tart combination. I served it with a few lemon rind twists on top, just for garnish.

Did you know that pound cakes got their name because you used a pound of flour and a pound of butter and a pound of sugar in it? I like that they don't crumble so you can eat a slice by hand without worrying about making a mess. I don't think this cake needs frosting. It is good enough without.

Who needs lemon slices on top when you have lemon zest! yum I had a great time with this recipe!

This is a excellent cake! For my frosting, I add a little lemon lemon juice to give it a little more lemon taste.

I forgot to add, I did not put the lemon slices on top.

I have not baked it yet. Will this weekend!
