I am in love with Starbucks’ Lemon Pound Cake, and for good reason, it is the best I have ever had….until I made my own that is. After many adjustments to the recipe, I found the perfect combination for a rich, lemony, buttery pound cake in less than 2 hours.
Note: This recipe can be used with any bread machine. Please add the ingredients in the order they are written.
1/2 c. vegetable oil
3 tbsp. softened butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. lemon extract
1/3 c. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
Add ingredients in the order listed, and select the setting for quick breads on your machine. While the loaf is baking, prepare the glaze.
Ingredients for glaze: 1 c. powdered sugar, 2 tbsp. milk, 1/2 tsp. lemon extract
Combine the ingredients and set aside. Once the loaf is finished, immediately add the glaze for a thin layer of sweetness, or wait until the loaf is cooled for a thicker, richer taste. Enjoy!
