Here is one of my favorite recipes I had to share this just in time for the holidays Glazed Lemon Pound Cake inspired by Land O’ Lakes.
The prep time is under 20 minutes. The total cook time is around 2.5 hours and serves about 16-20.

1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 to 2 tablespoons milk

*Substitute 2 teaspoons vinegar plus enough milk to equal 3/4 cup. Let stand 5 minutes.
– Glazed Lemon Pound Cake can be baked in loaves. Divide batter between 2 greased and floured 9×5-inch loaf pans. Bake 55-65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan. Cool completely.
– May freeze up to 1 month. Thaw and glaze before serving.
