Lemon Pound Cake with Meringue Icing

This weekend, instead of working countless hours on a major assignment that’s due Tuesday, I decided to bake.  Perhaps not my best decision, but a girl’s gotta eat.  Yes, that’s the reason I absolutely needed to bake a lemon pound cake.

Truly, though, I haven’t baked anything substantial in quite a while, as my last attempt at brownies was a bit of a disaster.  Not only were they not sweet, they didn’t even taste like chocolate.  This baffled my housemates and I for quite some time, as the house smelled so wonderful while they were baking.  In the end, they had absolutely no flavour.IMG_5507So, onto my experiment today.  I know I just posted a recipe for a Lemon Saskatoon Berry Coffee Cake, but this one is completely different, I promise.  I wanted a lemon loaf that was dense and very lemony, with an icing that would add some sweetness.  This cake turned out wonderfully.  It’s so delicious! You can always tell I’m especially excited about a recipe when I take almost 10 pictures of it.IMG_5524

  4. Beat egg whites on high with a hand mixer until they are fluffy and solid, about 2 minutes.
  5. Combine all wet ingredients, minus the egg whites, in a small bowl.
  6. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry until well combined.
  7. Add the egg white into the mixture and stir until just combined.
  8. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan.
  9. Bake for 50-60 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

Frosting
  1. Boil honey in a small sauce pan until it boils.
  2. Beat the egg white and salt on high with a hand or stand mixer
  3. One the egg white is frothy and solidifying slighty, pour the honey into the egg white. This cooks the egg white and thickens the mixture
  4. Add vanilla
  5. Ice your cake once the cake is completely cool. This is very important so you don't end up with little crumbs all throughout the icing!
