Pound Cake



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease a 9x5 inch (23x13cm) loaf pan.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  3. In a separate large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

  5. Beat in the lemon zest and lemon juice.

  6. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, alternating with the sour cream, and mix until just combined.

  7. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  8. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove it from the pan and let it cool completely on a wire rack.

  9. While the cake is cooling, prepare the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and heavy cream until smooth.

  10. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake and let it set for 20 minutes before serving.
