We love pound cake way more than ice cakes in this household and if it is citrus of any sort, I am in heaven. This is melt in your mouth velvety cake, I am sure it will make you fall in love with lemon. You can use lime or orange if you desire.
Flour 3 cups
Oil 1 cup
Butter 2/3 cup
Sugar 2 cups
Salt 2/3 tsp
Milk 1.5 cup
Lemon juice 1/4 cup
Vanilla 1 tsp
Lemon zest 2 tbsp
Baking powder 1.5 tsp
Preheat the oven at 350 Fahrenheit or 180 Celsius.
Beat oil, butter and sugar till nice and creamy.
Add eggs one at a time. And beat well
Everything should look like whipped frosting.
Mix lemon juice, milk and lemon zest. Let sit for 5 mins. It will look like split milk but that's how you want it. Whisk it and it's ready to use.
Sift baking powder, salt and flour.
Now add half flour mixture and use a spatula to mix followed by half of the liquid mix. Repeat till everything is well incorporated.
Butter and line two loaf pans.
Divide mixture between the two. Transfer to the middle rack and bake for 50-55 mins or until toothpick comes out clean.
