I made this recently for work and shared the recipe with a coworker.  You know my pictures are not this good, so she was kind enough to share her picture after she made it.  It's a really good, moist pound cake loaf.  I've been lucky over the summer for friends to share their abundance of lemons and have frozen lots of lemon juice and zest to use in recipes.


1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons lemon extract
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup oil
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice

Mix together until smooth.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray 9 x 5 loaf pan with Baker's Joy or grease and flour.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  In another bowl combine eggs sugar, butter, sour cream, vanilla, lemon extract and lemon juice until blended well.  Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and blend until smooth.  Add oil and lemon zest.  Mix well.

Pour into prepared loaf pan.  Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.  Remove and cool.  Pour glaze over top of cooled cake.
