Cooking is my best and biggest hobby – trying recipes with different flavor combinations like pound cake with lemon curd and raspberries. — Janice Baker, London, Kentucky

"I made this cake last year for my husband for Father's Day and he requested it again this year. I used an angel food cake loaf this year for a bit of a lighter version. Both cakes work well."

"Great quick dessert. I sometimes use a loaf angel food cake instead of the pound cake. And I make my own lemon curd. But you can't beat this combination!"
