Lemon Pound Cake Recipe - CHOW


1 cup plus 2 tablespoons cake flour
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
Grated zest of 1 1/2 lemons
3 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled


Heat oven to 325°F. Butter an 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch loaf pan and dust with flour, tapping out excess.
Whisk together the flour and baking powder to break up any lumps, then stir in the lemon zest; set aside.
Beat eggs at medium speed with an electric mixer until frothy. Gradually add the sugar and salt; increase speed to high and continue beating until thickened and pale, about 3 minutes more.
Reduce speed to low and add the flour mixture and cream alternately in three additions. Add the melted butter and mix until combined. Spread the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with a rubber spatula.
Bake for 65 to 70 minutes, or until the top of the cake is golden and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool the cake in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes, then turn the cake out of the pan and cool completely on the rack.

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!
