Lemon Pound Cake | Real Simple Recipes

Serves 36| Hands-On Time: 30m | Total Time: 1hr 30m
Ingredients

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus 1 cup (2 sticks), at room temperature
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups sugar
3 large eggs, at room temperature
zest of 1 lemon
1 cup light cream
1 tablespoon lemon extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Brush six 5 3/4-by-3 1/2-inch disposable loaf pans with the melted butter. Position a rack in lower third of oven. Preheat oven to 350° F.
Sift the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg into a large bowl; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the room-temperature butter on medium until smooth. Gradually add the sugar and beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Lightly whisk the eggs then beat them into the butter-sugar mixture. Add the lemon zest. Add a quarter of the dry-ingredients mixture, followed by a third of the cream, blending until smooth. Repeat until all the dry ingredients and cream have been combined. Blend in the extracts.
Divide the batter among the pans. Place pans in oven, spacing evenly. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until the tops are golden and a toothpick comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack. The cakes can be wrapped in plastic and kept frozen for up to 1 month.

This recipe makes 6 small cakes.

I got a confession to make. I am food addict, over-indulgent! I crave for anything especially sweets, chocolates, cakes, ice cream, strawberries, halo-halo, leche flan, banana Q, breads, pasta, Nasi Goreng....tell me what you got in your fridge ;-D. Thank heavens for I got my mum's genes, I can gain and lose pounds that easy and quick. I am here to share with you my food recipe collection (almost forgotten in a corner of my room) and search for new, exciting recipes, meet good people, and discover more about the world of baking. I am no professional baker or chef (just a wanna-be for now) but we'll get there in time. In sha Allah. Afterall, DREAMS just got to start somewhere, and it starts right here, right now! Meantime enjoy this food journey with me among other stuff....amigos to the kitchen! [Thank you for visiting my blog,you're always welcome to come by!
