Triple Citrus Pound Cake and a Giveaway!!!

Triple Citrus Pound Cake

This giveaway has now ended. Thank you to everyone who participated!

I recently joined a local Meetup group that goes to local and sometimes private farms to harvest fresh, in season produce. This past weekend we visited a local satsuma tangerine and blood orange orchard farmed by a very witty Italian man who reminded me of my grandfather. I will go more into the farm in an upcoming post.

I had been craving a “Starbucks” style lemon pound cake for a while now. This cake was everything that I craved and more. It is dense, moist, with a sweet tangy bite. Then, it is topped with a tarty yet sweet blood orange glaze and finished with sugar preserved lemon and tangerine slices and sprinkled with pomegranates. What more could you ask for, right?!

Moist Triple Citrus Pound Cake

I used Pure Lemon Extract from Nielsen-Massey to give the cake the sweet lemon flavor, just like at Starbucks. Let’s talk about these products for a second. I love them. I have been using the Vanilla Bean Paste for years. It is perfect for buttercreams, crème brûlée, or just about anything that you need a vanilla bean. I love seeing the little brown specs of vanilla bean!!!! Guess what!??!? Nielsen-Massey has generously offered to give you some too!!! More on the specifics at the end of the post.

    My most used extract is vanilla for sure, but I’m a big fan of almond extract in small doses – a little goes a long way! I have actually never used any other extracts!

    Vanilla is my favorite but Coconut is a close second

  6. janderoo92 February 4, 2013 at 1:38 pm #

    A high quality vanilla extract makes such a difference in how the baked good comes out. I love all those extract flavors in cake and cookies but vanilla is a necessary luxury. Your cake looks delicious.

    The vanilla bean paste is simply amazing – our local Price Chopper store carries it at a fraction of the cost of specialty stores. I first tried it when a former co worker made red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting… I was amazed at all the vanilla bean speckles within the frosting and asked how she did it (I had never heard of vanilla bean paste before!). Later that evening I went grocery shopping and just happened to find it in the baking/spice aisle at Price Chopper for under $10! I have since converted several fellow bakers to using it as well… soooo heavenly!!

    • The Seaside Baker February 4, 2013 at 1:53 pm #

      That’s awesome Kathryn! I wish we had a Price Chopper here…I usually pay $13 a bottle!!!! It really is the best stuff ever!

    M-M-M…citrus pound cake. I am running out to get the ingredients right now!! Pronto! I am sure the
    N-M extract is going to be way better than the McCormick’s that is probably ten years old and sitting in my cupboard.
