Lemon Pound Cake

Every day will be a cake day if it’s homemade one, and for us homemade cake is always the first choice. My husband just loves the homemade plain cake. So I always try to make a simple cake. Yesterday while watching a cookery show I learnt a very easy and nice lemon cake. First time I made a lemon flavor cake and this one turned really very good.

A oven fresh hot cake is a best evening snack in my place because my kido also loves to have cakes. So I prefer to give her a homemade one. 

Preparation time: 20 mints.
Backing time: 45 mints.

1.All purpose flour: 2 cup.
2.Sugar: 2 cup.
3.Eggs: 3.
4.Butter: 1/2cup (softened)
5.Canola oil or Vegetable oil: 3 table spoon.
6.Baking powder: 1 tea spoon.
7.Salt: ½ tea spoon.
8.One full lemon zest.
9.One table spoon lemon juice.
10.One table spoon lemon essence.
11.Milk: 1 cup.
12.Some extra butter and flour for greasing.


Preheat the oven in 175 C.

In a big bowl add the sugar, butter and canola oil mix till it light and fluffy about 5 mints.

Now add eggs one at a time and beating well after each addition.

Now add the lemon zest, lemon juice and lemon essence and mix well.

In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and backing powder nicely.

Now slowly add the flour mixture into the creamed mixture alternately with milk. Beat just until combined.

Now flour and grease one cake pan and pour the mixture into the pan and bake it for 40 to 45 mints or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Cool it for 10 mint, then take out the cake form the pan and place it in a cool rack.

Your easy LEMON POUND CAKE is ready serve and enjoy.
