Meet Katrina from Baking and Boys! A mother with a house full of testosterone in the shape of 4 boys and her husband. I like to think she bakes to help keep her sanity (my words). How she manages to do it all beats me as I struggle with time management and I don't have any children! I tip my hat to my blog partner for this month's Secret Recipe Club.
I loved looking through Katrina's blog as it's filled with photos of her beautiful family and little stories of her life. Of course, it's also filled with yummy recipes, but I couldn't go past this particular recipe as it had my name written all over it....
Sour Cream and Lemon Pound Cake
(see original recipe here)
I only made a slight change to Katrina's recipe, in that I used full-fat sour cream as I much prefer the taste and texture of it. I'm really not a fan of low-fat products due to the high amounts of sugar normally added to compensate.
I also decided to add a little glaze to the top of my cake but melting down some yummy French jam with a good squeeze of lemon juice and pouring it over the top. To be perfectly honest, the cake doesn't need anything at all, but I just felt it needed a little shiny coat for it's photo session.
This is definitely my sort of cake as it's no secret that I LOVE lemon cakes (see previous recipes here, here, here and here). This one is not overly sweet and with a fairly moist and dense texture - this is not a crumbly, light fluffy cake that you can eat slice after slice of. One slice filled me to the brim and I loved every bite of it.
