Copycat Starbucks Iced Lemon Pound Cake

My son Colson and I LOVE Starbucks Iced Lemon Pound Cake.  It’s become one of our favorite stop offs when we’re out running errands. But, the longer I’ve sat through the drive through the more I’ve pondered the idea of making my own. With a few google searches and some simple ingredients, I finally made it happen.  I will say it was a sucsessful, sweet and frugalistic win for sure!

Starbucks Lemon Loaf

Here’s what you will need:

1 box yellow cake mix
3.4 ounce instant or cook and serve Lemon pudding mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
8 ounces sour cream
6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3-4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and spray 2 loaf pans generously with cooking spray.
2. Place all cake ingredients in no particular order into stand or electric mixer, beating until well combined, about 1 1/2 minutes. Divide cake batter between two prepared loaf pans spreading evenly. Bake for 45-55 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through.

Remove and let cool for 15 minutes before before removing loaves from pans.

To prepare icing, place powdered sugar into a large bowl. Drizzle in lemon juice stirring until smooth and thick. Should be a good drizzling consistency. Drizzle icing over cakes and let set for 20 minutes for a firm icing. Otherwise slice while still wet if desired.  Makes about 24 slices
Note: You can make this same recipe into cupcakes, small loaves and even a layered cake. Adjust baking time accordingly.    removing loaves from pans and Enjoy!
