There’s something amazingly satisfying about a simple pound cake. Especially when it’s perfectly made, as were these by Andrew. The ‘crumb’ of the cake gives it a richness and depth of flavor that’s unlike any other cake. Infused with lemon flavor and enriched with sour cream, this cake then is glazed with a lemon-y icing. It’s a delight that we never grow tired of. And it always brings back memories for me of my Advertising years because, at one time, I worked on the Sara Lee Bakery account and at one time, Sara Lee made a pretty mean pound cake. That, unfortunately, was before the Butter Police and the accountants got in the way and Sara Lee’s cakes no longer cut it. You only had to ask Sara Lee herself. Yes, there was a real Sara Lee.
