Lemon Pound Cake Recipe featuring a rosemary-infused lemon glaze The idea for this lemon loaf cake recipe comes to us from Deanna Samaan, the lady behind the popular food blog, Seduction in the Kitchen. Every few months a few of us virtual foodies get together to recreate something that was originally done by another member of our “Freaky Friday” group. I’m delighted that we were assigned to cover something from Seduction in the Kitchen. Deanna has hundreds of mouthwatering recipes on her site. Indeed, we can just about throw a dart at her recipe index and wherever it lands we know it’s going to be delicious.   We love to bake here on Platter Talk and we love to use fresh lemons in the oven or on the stove top. Besides having a bright and fresh flavor, lemons are versatile and pair nicely with berries, herbs, and even chocolate, among many other tantalizing ingredients.   Our Rosemary Lemon Chicken  showcases the flavorful magic that occurs when fresh lemon and rosemary join forces together in a single recipe. Some of our other recipes that feature the use of lemons include: Lemon Bars Lemon Crunch Buddies Lemonade Pie Lemon-Blueberry Bread Lemon Ice Cookies Lemon Soda Pound Cake Julia Child’s Lemon Herb Roast Chicken Recipe Creamy Lemon and Parmesan Noodles Lemon Drop Cookies Pesto Stuffed Chicken Breast & Lemon Basil Sauce Blueberry-Lemon Bread Braised Garlic Chicken & Capers with Lemon-Anchovies Sauce Blueberry Crumb Cake & Cream Cheese Lemon Twist Recipe Be sure to real about how to choose a juicy lemon or lime, a Platter Talk Food Flash.   Making some slight modifications to Deanna’s lemon pound cake, we recreate that same magic, only this time in a dessert with this lemon loaf cake recipe and it’s rosemary-infused lemon glaze. To dress this dessert up just a bit, we make a few baby loaves and a bigger mamma loaf of this lemon loaf cake recipe. The whole family is dressed with thin slices of fresh lemon, sprigs of fresh rosemary, and a handful of plump, organic blueberries. Finally, we garnish the cakes with a light dusting of powdered sugar. How do you grease and flour a cake pan? We’ve got just the guy to show you how! The resulting taste in this lemon loaf cake family is one of sweet fresh love and makes for a welcome treat at home or work, or any special occasion where food is celebrated. I hope you try this lemon loaf cake recipe soon and be sure to drop by Seduction in the Kitchen as well.
