I love pound cake and like to serve it to guests, but find most recipes can be dry. This recipe is wonderful! It is easy, moist, and delicious.

If you are looking for a quick desert to prepare, this is not the recipe to try! It takes a bit of prep work. My cake turned out very dry. If I make this again, I will probably use a little less flour.

Easy to make and simple to serve. Extremely moist and lemony. One serving leaves you wanting another!
