Top-ranked recipe named "Old Fashioned Pound Cake"
"Very nice flavor and texture! I used vanilla and almond extracts and margerine in place of butter. (Word of advice make sure you place the cake pan on at least the middle rack and have ample room. I placed mine in the smaller oven of my double oven and it rose and touched the heating element.) I baked it in a loaf pan. Hubby enjoyed this cake also!"
Sift flour. Mix sugar and butter. Beat until creamy. Add 2 or 3 spoons flour and 1 egg. Beat well, and continue adding 2 or 3 spoons flour and 1 egg until all have been added. Then add vanilla, salt and lemon. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 1/4 hours or until a knife inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
Optional - Ice with Chocolate Icing.
1 box confectioners sugar sifted. Add 1 1/2 sticks softened butter and a pinch of salt. Then add 3/4 cups cocoa, 2 tsp vanilla extract and 1/2 cup milk. Mix gradually to right consistency. Add one cup of nuts. Spread evenly over cake.

Valerie411 1 month agoSuch a great recipe! I used 2 T of lemon juice in place of the lemon extract and topped it with a lemon glaze (1/4 c of sugar melted into the juice of one lemon) and it tastes great!! Next time I'll try less time in the oven, I had some trouble getting the cake out of the pan.

Kimbero911 8 months agoSuper easy recipe! I'd read some of the other reviews and added some lemon juice to the recipe and it turned out fabulous. I also only baked it for an hour, and it was perfection! Thank you for sharing this great recipe.

ambiemistry 1 year agoFirst time to make it today. My husband and kids love it. Will be making this again. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
pinksocks 1 year agoI used a regular loaf pan and as a result, it developed a serious crust. It also took longer to cook completely. Next time, and I will be making it again, I will use a bundt pan. I also switched up the extracts, using 1 1/2 teaspoons almond and just a half a teaspoon of vanilla. Great flavor
