Glazed Lemon Pound Cake

When I was a little girl I used to hate anything lemon.

Whenever my sister and I would have to share candy we would fight over who had to eat the lemon piece lol! It was like if you got stuck with the lemon piece you would explode into flames or something haha!

It’s funny how time changes things because now, as an adult, I would fight someone for the lemon candy. I love the fresh and crisp taste of lemons. Yum! This lemon drop cake is super tasty.

If you have ever had those lemon drop candies then you already have a head start on what this cake tastes like. It is sweet with a hint of tart tang that you just can’t deny! Another great thing about this cake?

It is super simple to make. Now, that’s a major plus in my book. Anytime I make a new dessert I always wonder how long it’ll take me to master. This cake came out perfectly the first time around.

If you haven’t ever tried Glazed Lemon Pound Cake you must do so now! I really cannot get over how awesome this cake is. Plus, it’s insanely easy to make. You are going to love every step of the process…and just wait until you get to the secret frosting part. Oh, boy! I can hardly wait until I get to sink my teeth into this yummy cake.

Check out what my pals over at Tasty Kitchen had to say about this:

Now, that just sounds amazing!
