Fresh lemon juice and pure lemon oil are added to this pound cake batter for the most moist lemon cake ever! I love using wild blueberries in this cake, but you can use regular blueberries as well.
HOW TO MAKE LEMON POUND CAKE:
Step 1: Use either a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer. Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the eggs, one at a time. Scrape the bottom and sides of the mixing bowl occasionally with a rubber spatula.
Step 2: Add the sour cream, lemon juice, lemon oil and combine. Scrape the bottom of the bowl again with a spatula.
Step 3: Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix until the batter is smooth.
Step 4: Fold the blueberries into the batter with a spatula. I keep blueberries in the freezer. TIP: Fold them into the batter frozen and will not smash. You’re welcome to use fresh blueberries if you have them.
Step 5: Divide the cake batter evenly into three 9×5-inch loaf pans. Use paper loaf pan liners for easier clean up. This also makes it easy to give a cake to a neighbor or friend.
These loaf pan paper liners are amazing! I love using them for my Banana Bread recipe and Sour Cream Coffee Cake. Paper liners for loaf pans are just as important in my kitchen as pre-cut sheets of parchment paper. I can’t stand fighting with a roll of parchment paper!
