Man, what a recipe to come back to. This weeks SMS recipe was Lemon Walnut Pound Cake chosen by Raeann of Basically, Baby Boots. The recipe can be found on her blog. I was excited to make this cake given all the rave reviews it received from the other SMS bloggers. Man, this one is a keeper.
I didn't want to do the nuts thing, and after seeing Cassie's Lemon Poppyseed Cake, I knew I wanted to sub in poppyseeds. I knew I made the right decision when hubby started cheering at the thought of a lemon poppyseed cake. I also substituted Greek yogurt for the sour cream and lactose free margarine for the butter. And still, the cake turned out AMAZING. So moist and light and fluffy, which is a miracle since I noticed about 40 minutes into my alleged cooking time that my digital oven had turned itself off, leaving me to guess at how long it had actually been cooking and how long it had to go! My dinner guests and hubby and myself all agreed that the baking fairy must have laced it with crack, we just couldn't stop eating it.
