Skip the Coffee Shop and Make Glazed Lemon Pound Cake at Home

I’ve fallen hard for Starbucks’ Iced Lemon Pound Cake, but I hate shelling out a few dollars for a piece of cake—especially when my Glazed Lemon Pound Cake is even more delicious, will cost you about $5 to make the whole loaf, and uses ingredients you already have in the house. Enjoy!

Homemade Starbucks Lemon Pound Cake

Glazed Lemon Pound Cake

  • Serves 8-10
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 c granulated sugar
  • 1 c sour cream
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • juice and zest of 1 large lemon, held separately
  • 1 ½ c all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • ⅔ c confectioner’s sugar

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, sour cream, vegetable oil, and lemon zest until completely combined. In a separate medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together.
  • Mix the dry mixture into the wet mixture, and then pour the batter into a lightly oiled loaf pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until a cake tester comes out clean from the center of the pan. Allow to cool slightly, and then remove from pan.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the confectioner’s sugar and lemon juice. Add the water little by little until the glaze is loose enough to pour over the cake. Slice and serve.

Mary would like to thank the lovely, generous people who gave me stuffed toys for her while I was on book tour. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed them last night when I returned home. Would you mind coming over this morning to clean up their guts, which have been strewn in every nook and cranny of our apartment. Thanks! 😘
