Lemon Pound Cake

I was looking for something light and fresh to make for Easter and found this delicious lemon pound cake recipe from Food & Wine. What made this cake intriguing was the use of grapefruit juice and yogurt. The recipe calls for a glass loaf pan which I didn't have so I used my regular metal one instead. I think the results would have been better with the glass pan. I felt like the edges on mine were a little over-done.

This cake is simple to make, but does take a while since there is a 50 minute bake time followed by the lemon syrup coating and then the glaze. I'm pretty sure the boys felt like this cake was never going to be ready. Thankfully, it turned out to be well worth the wait.

Clockwise: Floured loaf pan, dry ingredients, sugar and butter, yogurt and grapefruit mix and lemon ready to zest.
