Scrumptious Raspberry Lemon Pound Cake

raspberry lemon pound cake recipe


With the weather finally getting a bit warmer lately, I had the urge to bake something summery and fresh. Cookies? No. Cupcakes? Meh. Cake? Sure, why not. There are tons of different types of cakes, so a lesser chance of screwing it up? Here’s hoping!

To be honest, I’m not a big cake person. In fact, when given the option of desserts, I almost never pick cake. Not even birthday cake. That is unless pound cake is in the mix {or cheesecake, but that doesn’t count as cake in my book}. Pound cake is my jam. 

But I didn’t want to bake a boring pound cake. Google “pound cake recipe.” It’s been done like a million times. I wanted to add a little flare.

Since I love raspberries and lemons, and already had some chillin’ in the fridge, I incorporated them into a pound cake. It basically made the most scrumptious dessert in the entire world. Side note: Does anyone else eat pound cake for breakfast? It’s terrible for my waistline, but boy is it a treat.

The recipe below is by no means healthy, unless you count the fresh fruit, but it’s SO SO SO SO good.
