This cake doesn't rise very much, so don't be surprised if it's shorter than you might expect.

    Absolutely delicious! Had a piece just a short time after inverting and spreading top glaze. Wow! 5 Star rating!

    This was tasty, but not a classically dense pound cake, more like a yellow cake. I was expecting the denseness of a pound cake and what I got was the texture of an almost too dry yellow cake. This could possibly be due to that I made this at a location where I didn't have my stand mixer or even beaters and so I had to cream the butter and sugar by hand. Perhaps I should of done it longer.

    Finally made the "glazed lemon pound cake" last week. It stuck to the bottom on my glass baking dish. Tried again today, using a metal baking dish and it stuck again!! What am I doing wrong? I did use "convection bake" both times.

    Our family loved the lemony glaze. It crystallized a bit on top, so had a slightly crunchy lemony zing. I do think the cake is a touch dense for my preference as pound cakes go. That could possibly be remedied by whipping the butter and sugar together longer, and by whipping the egg whites separately to stiff peaks then folding into the batter. All in all a winner.

    I have made this recipe several times and has become a family favourite. This is a must-try recipe that is light and not too sweet.

    My family devoured this before I could even try a proper piece, but the bit that I did have was delicious and the glaze was a perfect complement to the pound cake.
