Lemony Limey Deliciousness

Share it Please
It is no secret how much I love lemon.  In savory dishes, in desserts, in any way I can get it - LOVE the lemony goodness.  I also love lime, but usually end up baking more with lemons.  This recipe is a delightful mixture of the two and results in a tasty harmony of citrus.

The texture of this cake is part quick-bread, part pound cake.  The sour cream keeps it moist and light and the glaze just adds that extra punch of citrus I love.  Give it a try and let me know what you think.

And now for an ode to lemons...

Cutting the lemon
the knife
leaves a little cathedral:
alcoves unguessed by the eye
that open acidulous glass
to the light; topazes
riding the droplets,
aromatic facades.

- An excerpt from "A Lemon" by Pablo Neruda

Oh how grandiose and delicious the lemon...ok, the entire poem goes a little nutty about this guy's love of lemons, but I get where he's coming from!  I've made quite a few lemon-based recipes over the years, here are a few I'll share again:

Addicting Lemon Creme Cake 

A Thanksgiving Lemon Mousse

Classic Lemon Bars

Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes

Lemon Ricotta Pound Cake

Lemony Baked Tilapia

Lemon Shrimp Salad with Couscous

You get the idea, and I have many more to share, but for the love of lemons, I'll leave it at that!
