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.
