On our recent trip to the USA we encountered some freezing weather in New York and Washington DC. To warm up, we popped into Starbucks regularly for a coffee or hot chocolate. While we were there we discovered the Iced Lemon Pound Cake which quickly became our treat of choice. We love the intense lemon flavour of this cake – so delicious! I have baked lots of lemon recipes (including Lemon Bundt Cake, Lemon Yoghurt Cake, and Lemon and Coconut Slice) but had never made a lemon pound cake until today.
When my family requested Lemon Cake, I did an online search and it turns out there are lots of recipes claiming to be just like the Starbucks Lemon Pound Cake. I used the copycat Starbucks Lemon Pound Cake Recipe that I found over at the 36th Avenue with a couple of modifications. I didn’t have any Lemon Essence in the pantry so omitted that ingredient. I made my own lemon frosting using lemon juice, softened butter, milk and icing (confectioner’s sugar). It tastes amazing and won’t last long.
