Glazed Lemon Pound Cake

There is something about a simple lemon pound cake that makes me happy. Maybe it’s the fact that you can eat it with a cup of coffee for breakfast and feel totally ok doing it. Or maybe because you can cut a small sliver off every time you walk through the kitchen and somehow not feel guilty about it. Or maybe because sometimes you refer to it as a “lemon loaf” which doesn’t remotely sound like a dessert. And if doesn’t sound like a dessert then it isn’t one right?

My mom and I have had an ongoing search for the “perfect lemon pound cake” for as long as I can remember. We tried this one by Martha (and yes I can use her first name only and you still know who I’m talking about) and while we were skeptical at first, we were really pleased with the end result: buttery, lemony without being too tart and just sweet enough.

The best part of this recipe?

It makes two loaves. One for you (obviously) and one for a friend.
