Pound cake is the little black dress of southern baking. Like a LBD, a pound cake can be casual and plain, or they can be dressed up with flavor, like the lemon cream cheese pound cake recipe I am sharing today.
Everyone (and their mama) has a lemon pound cake recipe, some were passed down from generation to generation, while some are modern rifts on the classic. I can’t tell you how many church functions growing up, ended with a dessert table filled with pound cakes. Funerals, weddings, potlucks, family reunions, Thanksgiving, Christmas. Somehow magically, there was always a pound cake.
