Pound cake is usually dense as it is a traditional recipe that made from equal portions of 4 ingredients: butter, sugar, eggs, and flour. It can be baked in either a loaf or bundt pan. For this refreshing pound cake I made was lighter than the traditional one, as baking powder and sour cream were added. I even added lemon zest and spread some yuzu marmalade in the middle of batter to get a little bit of citrusy flavor in the cake after its baked. I find this yuzu pound cake tastes even better the next day than on the day it was baked!
