Lemon Lovers Pound Cake Recipe @pinch

There is nothing better than a pound cake from scratch. This cake is tender and buttery with just the right amount of lemon flavor. The sweetness and tartness are a refreshing combination. Drizzled on top is an icing a little different than you'd expect. Using sour cream and butter is slightly rich. It is a cross between a frosting and a drizzle. Alone the cake is delish, but the drizzle makes it fantastic. Easy to make you can serve this for any occasion. This has a great fresh lemon taste. Excellent for spring picnics or maybe even a potluck.
