I have not been paid to show products pictured on this page. Delighted to share what I purchased and used to make this Lemon Pound Cake taste delicious!
My “tangy-lemony recipe” is a variation of an original recipe by tasteofhome.com.
The lemon glaze has a nice tang and is also easy to make with simple ingredients.
The cake and the glaze are flavored with fresh lemon juice and Lemon Extract.
Fresh lemon juice tastes much better than bottled lemon juice in my opinion.

How To Read & Follow A Recipe: Tips for Beginners
Reading a recipe is an important life skill that requires properly reading a recipe’s ingredients, and instructions. Plus, knowing how to prep ingredients and what equipment to use.
Start with clean hands and organized kitchen. Wash hands thoroughly. Make sure kitchen and countertops are clean before making a recipe.
Create a relaxing environment. Play favorite music while in the kitchen. I love listening to classical or gospel music.
Read the entire recipe so you understand it and to make sure you have each ingredient.
If you see ingredient that you and your family don’t use for whatever reason, use a substitute.
Watch Recipe Videos. If you’re a visual learner (like me), watching a recipe video is a great way to see how a recipe is made.
Mise en place is a super time saver. This French cooking term translates as “putting in place.” It means prepping/measuring ingredients and chopping food before you start cooking. Helps you make sure you have each ingredient and avoid accurately following instructions.
Make notes in your recipe. Note any special prep instructions and highlight cooking times. Make note of ingredients omitted, favorite substitutions and creative twists. The notes will be very helpful the next time you make this recipe.
