Golden Pound Cake

 Golden Pound Cake
Moist, refreshing and lemon-flavored, this sunshiny Bundt cake just couldn’t be much quicker to put together! It’s a summer favorite with Mechanicsville, Virginia reader Vicki Boyd, who sometimes substitutes orange cake mix and a can of orange Crush soda for a flavorful variation. —Vicki Boyd, Mechanicsville, Virginia
