Don’t get me wrong. I love my Starbucks. Here in Minnesota, we have Caribou, too. I don’t discriminate. I love both. I mean, hello, coffee. And all the yummies they have. Like lemon pound cake. Because that totally pairs well with your beverage poison of choice!
However, I cannot afford to pay $3 for a slice every.single.day., but I can afford $3 for all the ingredients to make this gluten free lemon iced pound cake recipe.
1 1/4 cups all purpose gluten-free flour
3/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 lemon, for zest
12 tablespoons unsalted butter (room temp)
4oz cream cheese (room temp)
1 cup granulated sugar
4 eggs, beaten (room temp)
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Sliced lemons and strawberries for decor
For the glaze
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
3 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease 9in x 5in loaf pan (I use this one)
In a small bowl, combine the flour, xanthan gum, cornstarch, salt and 3/4 of the lemon zest. Whisk to combine well. This will be the “flour mixture” as referred to below.
