Milk Street Recipe

Lemon-Almond Pound Cake

1½ hours (20 minutes active), plus cooling

For this plush, velvety pound cake, we took a cue from Rose Carrarini of Rose's Bakery in Paris and replaced some of the wheat flour with almond flour. Almond flour makes the cake's crumb extra tender and moist and gives it a more interesting texture than wheat flour alone. We finish the cake with a tangy-sweet lemon glaze, brushing it on while the loaf is still hot so the syrup is readily absorbed. Thanks to generous amounts of eggs and butter, this cake keeps well. Store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.
