Lemon Pound Cake

Lemon Pound Cake

According to the Foodie Dates on the calendar to the right, it is National Pound Cake Day!

Confession: I have never made a pound cake. I’m pretty sure I’ve never eaten pound cake.

Apparently, “pound cake” refers to a cake made with a pound each of butter, flour, sugar and eggs … or at least equal parts. What could be wrong with that?!?!

I think maybe it refers to the pound you gain after each serving.

Nah … that can’t be it.
