  • Summary

    A good lemon dessert is a foolproof crowd-pleaser, and this delightfully easy sour cream poundcake is no exception. The inside of the cake is sweet and tender, laced with a subtle lemon flavor throughout, while the outer part of the cake, brushed with a simple lemon juice-confectioners' sugar glaze, is distinctly tart and slightly crunchy. The two together is a sort of perfection. Featured in: Lemon Squeeze. 

    Ingredients

    • ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature, plus additional for greasing pan
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus additional for pan

    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • ½ teaspoon baking soda
