Lemon Pound Cake:Makes 2 standard loaves or 5 mini loaves (5.5x3x2)
2 sticks butter (softened)
2 1/2 cups sugar
3 cups flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. lemon extract
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream together butter and sugar. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt. Alternate adding eggs (2 at a time) and flour mixture to creamed butter. Mix in sour cream, vanilla and lemon extract.
Line loaf pans with parchment and grease well. Fill each loaf pan half full.
Bake standard loaves at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.
Bake mini loaf pans at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes.
Loaves are done when a toothpick comes out clean and the tops have a nice light golden color.
These cakes smell delicious right out of the oven, but will develop more flavor as they cool.
Have a Happy Day!
