Lemon Pound Cake with Lemon Glaze Recipe


  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 Tbs fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs fresh lemon zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Glaze:
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbs fresh squeezed lemon juice, at room temperature


  1. Preheat oven to 325
  2. Grease a bundt pan, covering all sections well
  3. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together, set aside
  4. In separate bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy; beat in eggs, 1 at a time; mix in sour cream, lemon juice, vanilla and lemon zest
  5. Mix half of the flour mixture into the butter mixture; mix in buttermilk next, then add in remaining flour and mix just until flour disappears into batter. Pour cake batter into heavily greased bundt pan
  6. Bake for 70-80 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean; remove from oven, cool 10 minutes. Turn cake onto a cake platter, poke holes in with a toothpick or fork. Mix powdered sugar and lemon juice until the glaze is smooth. Slowly pour glaze over the warm cake so the glaze soaks in.
