Whenever I went to Starbucks, I always had to have a slice of their lemon pound cake. I've been in withdrawal ever since my Celiac diagnosis. BUT . . . I made this recipe the other day and my craving has at last been satisfied. This tastes just like the Starbucks cake and is easy to make. I will be making it again . . . and again . . . ad infinitum. :D
