My favorite cake is my cream cheese pound cake!  It's so simple, and the taste is so delicious.  It has been one of the most popular recipes on the site and several people requested a lemon one.  Instead of making it with cream cheese I decided to opt for sour cream.  I think it brings that extra tang to it!  I did make a lemon glaze for it, however half of the family likes it with it while the other half preferred it without.  I like it without because I like the simplicity of the cake...a rich and delicious pound cake with a hint of lemon.   I'll put it on the recipe and you can decide for yourself if you want to make it or not...enjoy!
