Author Cecelia Dowdy & Her Grandmother’s Lemon Pound Cake — 22 Comments

  1. I love to share recipes. I think it is because I like getting recipes from other people.

  2. Hi, Deanne!

    I usually make the cake for Thanksgiving. I might make it at least one other time during the year. If you make it be sure to place the glaze on top, the glaze in the recipe! That’s partially the secret to making this cake so amazing! That tart lemon glaze is a nice contrast to the moist, sweet, buttery lemon pound cake! Yum! I’m smacking my lips as I write this comment! LOL!

  3. Hi Sonja

    I probably have about 40 cookbooks! No, I’m not kidding. But, I do look online for recipes all the time, print them out when I need them!

  4. I love to share recipes and there’s nothing I enjoy more than a yummy, moist pound cake so thank you!! And it sounds like an interesting story & a great conflict. Back when I first started dating my hubby, my roommate had been crushing on him for years so I can relate to the dilemma!

  5. Although I am somewhat limited with my personal recipes, I willingly share them. I think it’s fun!

  6. I love to try new recipes and share them also! Sounds like a great book to read!

  7. I don’t share recipes because I don’t have any!! Lol. I live alone. It’s hard cooking or baking for 1 but when I do get an urge to do so , I look in a cookbook. I doubt anyone would want my cooking but if gladly tell them which cookbook I got it from. I’m a microwave Queen. Yes, I probably glow in the dark too by now from it but it’s fast & easy 🙂

  8. Thank you so much for sharing the nummy recipe! I am a recipe sharing person. I have a lot. I have even put together several recipe books in my day and not published but given them to family and friends. Now I just store them on my computer and print them out when I need one. Would love to win your book!

  9. First of all, thank you for sharing your dear grandmother’s recipe for lemon pound cake (and from Michigan, my home state!) I love lemon everything! This will be made soon! Secondly, when I read the Jan Karon series and the orange marmalade cake was mentioned time and time again, I was ecstatic when I finally found a copy of that recipe in the cookbook Jan released. Thirdly, my grandmother had a few “special” recipes that I was somewhat reluctant to share beyond the family, but in the past few years I’ve released my hold on them and have shared them with others! Great blog piece! I loved it. I’m not an ebook reader, but in the event that I should win this contest, I’d have to make an exception!

  10. I am happy to share recipes for whatever I make. If I owned a bakery it just may be a different story though. I have read some of Jan Karon’s books but nope I don’t recall Esther Bolek keeping any recipes secret. Maybe it was a book I haven’t read of hers. I would love to win and read Raspberry Kisses The Bakery Romance Series Book 1. Your Grandmother’s Lemon Pound Cake sounds really divine. How often do you find yourself making it Cecelia Dowdy ? Do you make it just for special occasions or just anytime ? I am definitely going to make it and my husband will love it too. Thank you for the recipe !

  11. My mom also makes lemon pound cake! Not sure where she got the recipe from but it’s very similar to this one. We live in Arkansas. I love to share recipes, if they are good ones.

  12. Thanks for sharing the recipe! The lemon always evaporates out of mine. No need to put me in for a drawing of Raspberry Kisses, it is in my TBR pile.

  13. Hi, Lyn!

    Thanks so much for hosting me on your blog today! I don’t keep recipes a secret, I want all to taste my great treats! However, if I were running a bakery business, I’d probably be hesitant to tell others about my secret recipes for baked goods!
