SMS: Lemon Walnut Sour Cream Pound Cake


I am back with Sweet Melissa Sundays today and boy is it a great recipe to come back with. The recipe choice was Lemon Walnut Sour Cream Pound Cake and it is delicious! Plus it smells AMAZING!

The cake itself has just the right amount of lemon and is so moist. I love the walnut chunks throughout the cake and the crunch they provide. I am not used to nuts in my pound cakes but I was pleasantly surprised. The cake is finished off with a lemon and sugar glaze that adds just a little more lemon. I really enjoyed this cake!

Thanks to Raeann of Basically, Baby Boots for hosting this week. The recipe can be found at her blog.

I couldn't get over how wonderful this smelled while it was baking! Yours looks terrific with all the nuts on top!

It truly was a great pound cake recipe. I was a little nervous because the last two pound cakes I have made have been dry. I think the glaze really helped give it some moistness!
Your cake looks great and Im glad you liked it. I agree with you on the nuts..they are a wonderful addition to a wonderful pound cake!

Your cake looks beautiful! WE loved ours as well, and it did make the house smell fabulous while it was baking.

Your cake looks great! I wasn't sure about the walnuts at first either and thought they were so good in the cake!

This looks incredible Cristine. I especially love the nuts on top...great idea. I may have to do the same the next time I make this.
