Lemon pound cake

I know, I know it looks like another lemon cake and it is another lemon cake. My excuse

is that a massive weather front crossed Arizona yesterday, blew a hoolie which left tons of lemons on the ground so said lemons had to be picked up and a use found for them! cake of course. if i had my trusted thermomix here in arizona I'd be able to make copious quantities of lemon curd and give it away. i have asked before, but if there are thermomix bloggers who know why I cant buy one in the US do leave a comment please. I am also blaming Pinterest ! I came across blogger tablefortwo who has the original recipe here.

I love the Williams Sonoma lemon loaf tin- it's in the Nordic ware range. It a heavy duty quality and will last a lifetime, so worth the extra money in my view. I think they may have discontinued it as I have been trying to buy another to have one at home in guernsey. I only tweaked the recipe (link above) by adding more lemon and no almond. I have to say it is an unusual way to make a sponge. Rather than creaming the butter and sugar the butter is added to dry ingredients so it looks a bit lumpy for a while. No problem for the kitchen aid though and the end result was exceptionally good. By pound cake standards very light.

That's three lemons fewer, hardly a dent made in the fruit fall!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
