Lemon Pound Cake


 Super moist, super good!

You don't need a lot of ingredients to make this cake
and by no means is it hard to make and you can certainly see it's worth it.

Lets begin:

Here's what you'll need... 


1 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup butter, softened
1 Cup Sugar
4 Eggs
2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/4 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice


Okay, I forgot to put the lemon on the tray... no big deal.  
Picture it in your mind. 


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Line your bread loaf pan with parchment paper.


Yeah, yeah, no pictures of this either.




In a medium bowl cream your butter.

That's right... I am giving you pictures of the stuff, but not the work. 

 

Then add the sugar and mix again.
 
 
 
 
Add each egg one at a time with the mixer running on slow.
 
 
 
 
Add the vanilla.
 
 
 
In medium bowl add the flour...
 


baking powder...


 and salt.
 
 
 
 Zest the lemon and juice it to make enough for 1/4 cup of juice. 
 
In equal parts, alternate between putting a portion of the flour mixture and the lemon juice into the butter mixture ending with the lemon juice. 
 
Put the lemon mixture in the loaf pan and bake for 60 minutes or until a tooth pick test comes out clean.
