Lemon Sour Cream Pound Cake

 My first ever Pound Cake was DELICIOUS.  It is so dense, flavorful and soft.  I always had the notion that this would be so time consuming and difficult however, it was quite the opposite.  My husband seriously devoured it.  A perfect cake for any gathering!
Ingredients for Cake:
  • 1/2 cup Crisco
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • juice and zest from one small lemon

    Ingredients for Glaze:
    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
    • juice and zest from 1/2 lemon

    Directions:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl cream together Crisco and sugar.  Mix in eggs, sour cream, vanilla  and lemon juice/zest.  Slowly mix in the soda and flour until smooth.  Pour batter into a greased or parchment paper lined bread pan and bake for 45-60 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.  When Cake has cooled whisk together all glaze ingredients and drizzle over the top.
