I baked Elvis Presleys Favorite Pound Cake yesterday, and it is very good. I have a Christmas order for a Lemon Pound cake, so I added the following:

1TB Crème Bouquet
1TB Lemon Emulsion
1TB Lemon Extract
½ TB Butter Flavor
2 TB Lemon Zest
3 TB Lemon Juice from actual lemons

I divided batter into two parts and added lemon pudding to one. It still only had a hint of lemon taste. My husbands sense of taste is stronger than mine, and he said he could taste the lemon. I just dont want her disappointed with the results. Do you mind sharing how you flavor your lemon pound cake or lemon cake? Also, can you share a nice glaze or something to pour over it.

Many thanks in advance. icon_biggrin.gif

wow, I would think with all that lemon, there wouldn't be any question about the flavor!! When I make a lemon pound cake I add I TBS of lemon Emusion + about 1 tsp of rind. Also add just a hint of vanilla.

For the glaze I use powered sugar with lemon juice.
