Pound cake with lemon basil glaze is the perfect cake recipe to make for a light, lemony summer dessert. The fresh basil adds great flavor and a nice visual aspect to the sugar glaze on top.
A few weeks ago when I was asked by my blogging friend Lark to write a guest post for her site, I was overjoyed! I love to write and create recipes, and I am happy to do this for Lark! We have never formally met, but I feel like I have known her a lifetime. She and I have a lot in common and I think we would make great friends. Recently, I entered a dessert in Lark’s ‘Baking up a Cure’ fundraiser. This is an issue that is close to my heart, so I jumped at the chance to do it! She loves and lives the idea of ‘Pay it Forward’ so I want to do the same.
So you would think it would be easy to pick a recipe to share in a guest post, but for me, it isn’t. But what I did pick is sure to tickle your taste buds and make your family happy as well. Don’t be thrown off by the ingredients in the glaze; lemon and basil pair really well together. I am such a fan of basil, in anything and everything. Slow Cooker Lemon Basil Chicken and Tossed Caprese Salad are just two of my favorite recipes that use basil.
So, it is fitting that I made a pound cake using one of my favorite ingredients!
Everyone in my family loves this cake, even my picky eater, who doesn’t like to eat anything green!
Be sure to save yourself an extra slice. This one is mine. 🙂
