  3. In another bowl, with a stand or a hand mixer, incorporate together all the wet ingredients: eggs, yogurt and lemon juice.

  4. Now, start pouring the wet ingredients on the dry ingredients little by little while mixing until obtaining a uniform batter.

  5. Finally, pour the the batter into a buttered and floured cake mold and bake for 150°C for approximately 1h or until a toothpick or a knife comes out clean.


  1. In a cup, mix the confectioner’s sugar with the lemon juice and the milk until you obtain a white cream.

    If you feel like it’s too stiff, add milk. If you feel like it’s too runny, add confectioner’s sugar.


  1. When the cake is fully cold, unmold it and with the help of a spoon, drizzle the sugar lemon icing all over its top.

  2. Right afterwards, sprinkle the lemon zest to give the cake a little bit of color.

  3. Let the icing dry and the Lemon Pound Cake is ready to be served.
