Lemon Pound Cake & Muffins

This Lemon Pound Cake is a variation of my original Cream Cheese Pound Cake. The lemon flavor gives it the perfect warm weather kick! This recipe will make a regular round bundt pan, two loaf pans, or 24 muffins.

Booth, oh, no, pinched nerves! Makes me hurt to think about it. Get well soon! Thanks for the recipe for lemon pound cake! Your timing is perfect as we are going to Katie's inlaws house (here in Wilmington) for Easter and they are Greek. So they (and we) all love lemon-anything! I'll bake it and take it! Good luck with college searches--our granddaughter, Carly, in Raleigh, is doing the same. Happy Easter to you and the boys! God bless!
