Moist Lemon Pound Cake Recipe

If you like a moist lemony pound cake than you have got a keeper recipe here. This lemon pound cake is so similar to the ones sold at coffee shops such as Starbucks. 

I was inspired to make this by a Duncan Hines recipe I came across. The photo of there pound cake was just what I was looking for in a pound cake… Moist, yellow-y like texture that looked like a slice of pound cake sold at a bakery.  I know the recipe calls for a boxed cake & pudding mix but let me tell you this is probably the closet you will get to the bakery versions…. Besides I’m thinking big chain bakeries sometimes go the easy way in preparing there baked goods to feed such big crowds of people daily, but that’s just my opinion… This is truly an easy and super moist lemon pound cake recipe that I hope you may try to really see what I’m talking about.

4. To glaze the pound cake, whisk together the glaze ingredients until smooth and spread over the cooled cake.
