Quadruple-Citrus Pound Cake
A Quadruple-Citrus Pound Cake in late September? I know that seems weird but there is a reason why I was craving citrus cake.
The weather in Chicago has been its usual unpredictable self. In early fall, it has dipped way below the average, and I can feel a cold winter coming my way soon enough. I wanted to create a recipe that would give me a little sunshine, and this cake is definitely it.
The original BHG recipe I found was for Triple-Citrus Pound Cake. I kept the recipe very similar and only added some lemon flavor to make the cake even brighter.
- I added two teaspoons of fresh lemon zest.
- I also added two teaspoons of fresh lemon juice but I adore lemon so I really loved this addition!
This Quadruple-Citrus Pound Cake was just what I needed to get over my summer saying goodbye. It perked me up with a slight pucker. The bright flavors of grapefruit, orange, lime and now lemon are just perfect in this light, fluffy and beautifully textured cake. This treat is perfect with a cup of coffee or after a delightful dinner. Either way, make this cake, and I am sure your Fall season will be much brighter.
