Well, well, well…
Look who decided to show up 6-months later to talk about lemon berry pound cake…yep, it’s me!
It breaks my heart to think that this much time has passed since I last shared anything from my kitchen with you all </3 And…I could go on with a list of a bunch of excuses, but to spare you…life just happens sometimes and, life happened…but I’M BACK!!
To make it up to you, I baked you this berry delicious pound cake 🙂
Lemon-flavored baked goods are some of my favorite things to indulge in (remember those lemon blueberry prosecco pancakes I made a couple years ago?!), especially when the weather starts to warm up..the flavor is just so bright and tart and fun…perfect for the warmer months.
Since lemons team up with blueberries quite often, I wanted to mix things up a bit and decided to bring raspberries to the party. I also wanted to have something that really balanced the tartness of all the lemon-berry flavors and came up with an interestingly delicious basil whipped cream, naturally!
I was really pleased with how this pound cake turned out — and I’m fully convinced the lemon yogurt had a lot to do with it. The yogurt just does a great job of keeping the cake really moist, plus it adds another level of lemon-flavor without getting too-tart of a result, which may happen if you solely rely on lemon juice to get you there.
Speaking of flavor…it was so on point!
The mix of berries with the lemony cake was delicious all on its own, but when I added the basil whipped cream, it just rounded out the cake so well. Adding both raspberries and blueberries to this cake not only gave it a great flavor, but the colors were really pretty, too!
OH and I should note that absent from my photos is the lemon glaze that I made and drizzled over the cake as it was cooling. This is important — you don’t want to skip the lemon glaze because so much of the yummy tartness comes from it! Don’t worry though, as usual, I have everything written out for you..
Here’s the recipe!
So, here’s to not disappearing for another 6 months again. I promise I have some really great food and new posts planned for the coming weeks.
I’m so excited to be back, thanks for sticking with me!!
