I am sure everyone has had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and you’re looking forward to Christmas and the new year.
When it comes to holidays season, I am all about baking cakes and cookies.
It’s that time of year I really indulge in sweet stuff.
This lemon pound cake is one of my favorite cakes.
It’s basically buttery, sweet pound cake with lemon juice, and a sugary glaze.
It just doesn’t get any better than this.
Iced lemon pound cake is also my favorite cake to go with my Starbucks coffee.
So baking this at home is a great idea as I can have the entire loaf or more!
I love baking my cake with mini loaf pans.
They look adorable and I won’t feel guilty eating the entire loaf.
The size is also great as a cute holiday gift to your neighbors and friends.
Try this lemon pound cake recipe this holiday season!
