It’s Lemon Pound Cake time.
I have to say, the best thing I have ever done was host this Kitchen Aid giveaway (which you still have time to enter) because the recipe submissions that I am getting are nothing short of amazing. I have not been able to use some of them as they are not Paleo and can not be modified but others are spot on. One of those that is spot on, would be this AMAZING cake. I got a little distracted while I was making my glaze and ended up with a chewy lemon honey vanilla caramel but it was a beautiful contrast. I am still cooking my way through all of the recipe submissions and I can say I am enjoying this giveaway more than any other I have ever done. My belly is particularly happy even though my six pack disappeared. Oh well.I am not going to talk any longer to delay the possibility of you eating this cake. I just ask, that once you make it please come leave a review and a comment so others no how amazing it is and feel encouraged to try. As most of you know, as of next week I will be an official civilian and no longer an active duty United States Marine. With that being said, this website has become my full time job. Every person that visits, shares, and spreads the word greatly helps me out to continue to do this. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you for constantly supporting me and enjoying all these creations. One day, I want to rent a state and throw a massive Civilized Caveman Party haha. Anyone know how to make that happen, it would be like a food woodstock :)
