Pound Cake and Lemon Ice Cream

If your New Year's resolution was to loose weight then you should probably not read this recipe, but if you want to impress dinner guests or you have a lot of self-control then read on. This is the first time I have made pound cake, I thought it would be hard but it was super easy and soooo yummy!!! The original cake recipe called for sprite but we don't usually buy soda, I had a mystery bottle of cherry coke in the pantry so I substituted it for the sprite. I also made some super yummy lemon ice cream that went terrific with the cake. I adapted the cake recipe from on of my favorite blogs, Enjoy

Lemon Ice Cream

1 cup of milk
3/4 cup of sugar
2 cups of heavy cream
1 1/2 tsp of lemon extract

Mix all ingredients together and then follow directions that come with your ice cream maker.

Pound Cake

  • 3 sticks Butter
  • 3 cups Sugar
  • 5 whole Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Butter Flavoring
  • 2 teaspoons Lemon Flavoring
  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 cup of soda

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Cream butter. Add sugar, 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing after each addition. Add butter and lemon extracts and mix well. Add flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add soft drink, then mix together until combined. Scrape sides of bowl, then mix briefly.

Pour into a greased Bundt pan and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until the cake is no longer jiggly.

Remove cake from oven and invert pan onto a plate until cake drops out.
