Easy Lemon Pound Cake



I was out of orange juice for my regular lemon delight pound cake so I adapted this recipe.  In the ()s my measurements. The batter tasted good so I hope the cake will to. I will come and update as to outcome after the party lets me know how it taste.


  • 1/2 cup butter, melted (1 cup oil)
  • 1 cup sugar  (2 cups)
  • 2 eggs, well beaten  (4)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (2 tsp. lemon extract)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (1/2 tsp.)
  • 1 1/2 cups flour  (2  )
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder  (2)
  • 1/2 cup milk  (2)
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice (2/3)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar (1/2)


  1. Mix together 1 cup sugar and butter.
  2. Add eggs and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice; mix well.
  3. Add salt, flour, and baking powder to mixture.
  4. Add milk.
  5. Bake at 325F in a well-greased loaf pan (Bundt) for 1 hour, or until golden brown. I do use parchment paper and a floured oil spray. Spray pan put in parchment paper and re-spray top of paper and sides of pans. Comes out so easy. I so wish it came precut to my 9 pans.
  6. Mix cup lemon juice and powdered sugar.
  7. Use a toothpick to make holes in top of cake and drizzle lemon juice and sugar mixture over the top of the cake when removed from the oven.
  8. Serve warm or cool.
