Yesterday I returned home from a fabulous weekend in Austin, TX. It was my first time in Texas, and boy did we live it up! I am pretty sure we tried every type of food and every local brew. I am still in such a food comma, so this post will be short!
After having spent the weekend in 95 degree weather, I knew I wanted something fresh and light. Now, I know that pound cake is traditionally neither fresh nor light, but I had bigger plans for it (in an upcoming post).
Despite being a dense cake, this pound cake is freshened up with lime zest and juice. The coconut extract that is added to the batter creates a light pillow-y center (it’s 3am and describing this cake is difficult. Just make it, it won’t disappoint, I promise!).
