My son asked if I could make a recipe from the 1920s for him to bring to school. I did some internet searching and came across this recipe for The Famous Ritz Carlton Hotel 1920’s Tea Room Lemon Pound Cake.

Famous!

I don’t know about that. I’d never heard of it before, but it looked good and I was willing to believe the world wide web.

This is a classic take on Pound Cake. It’s not too dense and has a lovely, light lemon flavor.
