ISO super dense, moist, extra lemony Lemon pound cake

I made the delicious mistake of eating at a local tea room where I opted for a lemon cake slice for dessert. (After a chicken salad sandwich that was quite tasty and have since near duplicated after a rec here to cook the chicken in cream...wonderful) see post here:

Since then I have tried endlessy to duplicate a cake like that one. It taunts me, I have tried several on this thread:, as well as others i have seen online. Becca Porter's cake was WONDERFUL, and i was told by several it would be a great wedding cake :)...however they were not dense enough, so I have decided a pound cake may be what i am looking for.. My BF loves all the taste testing going on, but after a break from my search (is it possible to ruin your taste buds from too much sugar?...I think i did) I am ready to try again! So I am calling on any and all suggestions you have.

I am also looking for a great dense apple cake but may do that in another thread :)
