Bam’s Lemon Pound Cake

This recipe was given to me by the lady wh

o lived across the street from the first house I ever bought. Jean was a mentor, a confidante, and a much-loved friend. She taught me a great deal about gardening, cooking, baking, and parenting. After my mama Jean is the lady I miss most in my life. I call it Bam’s Lemon Pound Cake because I’ve made some changes to the original recipe over the years.

Bam's Lemon Pound Cake

Right after I washed my hands to begin baking, Remy (the sometimes wonder dog) decided my hands needed to be licked. He was banished from the kitchen and spent the rest of the time I was baking pouting on the sofa. Hands re-washed, I began.

      Thank you! I love lemon but I lost that cake! My son decided to take it home with him.

      I can’t complain about him, though. LOL He gets invited for dinner and half the time he ends up cooking it! He’s great in the kitchen. And he also hauls out the rototiller every spring for my vegetable garden, cuts down trees I don’t want, mops the floors for me when I’m having a really painful day, and does pretty much everything else I ask of him. I guess giving up the occasional lemon cake isn’t too bad a trade.
