Raspberry Lemon Pound Cake

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp. grated lemon zest
  • large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • (6-oz.) container raspberries

Glaze

  • 1/2 c. confectioners’ sugar
  • 5 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp. seedless raspberry jam

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and lightly flour 8 1⁄2″-x-4 1⁄2″ loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. In a second bowl, with mixer on medium speed, beat sugar, butter, cream cheese, and lemon zest until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time, scraping side of the bowl as needed and beat in vanilla. In two batches, beat in flour mixture until just combined. Fold in raspberries with a spatula.
  3. Transfer batter to a prepared loaf pan and smooth top. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 1 hour 5 minutes to 1 hour 10 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes on wire rack. Loosen side with a small knife and invert onto rack. Let cool.
  4.  Meanwhile, in a blender, purée confectioners’ sugar, cream and jam, scraping down the sides as needed. Drizzle glaze over cooled cake and serve.
