4 stars from 10 ratings of Meyer lemon Pound Cake

I love Meyer lemons. They're much sweeter than a regular lemon, and for me, nothing says springtime more. There is nothing better than eating under a shade tree with a slice of Meyer lemon pound cake, a glass of Meyer lemon aid, and a few friends to share it with.

Meyer lemons are in season from December through May, but I usually don't buy them until spring has started. They are much sweeter than regular lemons and have a pleasant floral aroma. They are lovely with baked goods, drinks and salad, and I usually keep on hand Meyer lemon curd and marmalade in my pantry. You can substitute with regular lemons but remember they are much more acidic than Meyer lemons, so you will need to adjust the recipes to your taste.

I have made this recipe for years now, and it is one of the best I know of. I hope you enjoy it.
