Lemon Cake

Recipe CardCan you tell I’ve made this lemon cake many times?  This stained and slightly burned card is a relic of my days in Cambridge (MA) in the late…well, I won’t tell you how many decades ago it was!

I realize now what I didn’t then, that it is basically a time-honored pound cake, but with a sugar-lemon glaze brushed over it while still warm.

The top would get slightly crunchy as the glaze hardened, and my friends and I gobbled the whole thing up within minutes it seemed.

I had not made this in years, but on yet a another rainy weekend day decided to make it and share it with my father for Father’s Day.
