Iced Lemon Pound Cake

Recently I came across these words: Starbuck’s Iced Lemon Pound Cake. 

Jenny Flake from Picky Palate pretty much had me at ‘Starbuck’s’.  You see, this is a word that evokes the simple comfort I receive in a delightful cup of coffee.  A single five spot magically conjures happiness, joy, and delight in the small things.  Yes, I do love a good Starbuck’s now and again.  I say this in my oh-so-nonchalant voice.  The real truth is a Grande Skinny Caramel Machiatto will completely make my day.  It will drown out a whiny three year old in the backseat.  It will bring me to the streets of Paris for a moment, long enough to cause me to feel a romantic swoon.  Yes, I am still speaking of my coffee.  You see, it’s THAT good.

I also have a teeny tiny thing for lemon.  I’m not over the top about it.  I just enjoy a good lemon flavored treat now and again.  Something about lemon radiates sunshine and rainbows for me.  I am trying to be non-chalant here too.  I have been known to eat entire pans of lemon bars.  Please don’t judge me.

Based on all this, you can imagine my squeals of delight when I spied this copycat recipe for Starbuck’s Iced Lemon Pound Cake.

Tiny bells of joy rang inside of me.  My mouth began to salivate ever so slightly. 

I have also been eyeing up these so-cute mini loaf pans and finally decided that they must be mine.

What do you think happened next?

Pound Cake.  Mini-loaf pans.  Hmmm…

Definitely worth a go. 

Now, don’t get me wrong.  If you have a chance to indulge at a real Starbuck’s, by all means do so.

Their coffee is top notch.  Their lemon pound cake is divine.

But if you feel like creating a little slice of heaven at home, you could make this luscious cake.

You could also share it with friends like I did.  You see, if I didn’t share, I might be inclined to eat all of it.

That can’t happen because I really don’t want to weigh more than I already do.  Plus, I like to share. 

I’ll even share the printable version with you. 

Lemon Love,
