We’ve reached that point in the late-winter-almost-spring-dear-goodness-let-it-be-spring where I desperately need warmth and sunshine. And this lemon orange pound cake is basically the pastry embodiment of sunshine, so it will just have to do.
I’ve adapted this recipe from a lemon pound cake that A Beautiful Plate posted. While I love lemon with my whole heart, I thought that the addition of orange would bring a balance with a milder and sweeter citrus. And boy, does it ever! I also upped the citrus in the glaze in particular.
Besides the amazing flavor, the other thing to love about this cake is the texture—it’s so moist! In my experience, pound cakes are denser and drier, but the greek yogurt helps keep this super soft and fluffy. Basically, this cake is a winner!
(On a side note, I absolutely love the stunning Magnolia bundt cake pan I made this in…was my first time trying it out!).
