American Easy Lemon Pound Cake Recipes That Everyone on the Go Should Be Familiar With 🍰  

Absolutely, here's a classic American easy lemon pound cake recipe that's perfect for busy individuals on the go:Β 

Ingredients: – 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened – 1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar – 4 large eggs, room temperature – 2 cups all-purpose flour

– 1 teaspoon baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon baking soda – 1/4 teaspoon salt – 1/2 cup sour cream – 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice – Zest of 2 lemon – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Lemon Glaze: – 1 cup powdered sugar – 2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice – Zest of 1 lemon (optional, for garnish)

Instructions: 1. Preheat your oven to 350Β°F (175Β°C). Grease and flour a 9x5-inch loaf pan or line it with parchment paper. 2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy using an electric mixer, about 3-4 minutes.

1. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. 2. In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 3. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the sour cream, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla extract. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined after each addition. Be careful not to overmix.

1. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it evenly. 2. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
