There is likely a serious deficiency in me, but I am just not much of one for cakes. I don't tend to eat them so I don't tend to bake them. But I do have some dear neighbors and one of them has asked me to teach her how to make the Starbucks Lemon Poundcake so she can make it for her roommate.
I have scoured the internets and found many copycat recipies - some using boxed mixes, others incorporating sour cream or mayonnaise, many using little butter (which surprised me).
I don't think that I have had the cake myself, but it looks dense, moist, and has a white topping that might be a thick glaze or maybe cream cheese? (That is just a guess.)
Any good, basic recipes you might have to offer would be gratefully received, as would any hints (I am not a cake baker). Many thanks!
