When life gives you lemons....make Lemon Pound Cake!

I hate letting food go bad so when I saw a lemon in our refrigerator about read to go bad I went out looking for a recipe. I found this is sooooo easy.

One Egg Lemon Pound Cake

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon extract (I used juice from a whole was as lemony as I would have the future I am going with the lemon extract)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) grease and flour an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
2. In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter. Break 1 egg into a measuring cup and then fill to the 1 cup line with milk. Add to dry ingredients and beat well. Add vanilla and lemon flavoring.
3. Pour batter into an 8x4 inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of cake comes out clean.

My co-workers gobbled this right up...another winner.
