  1. Can’t wait to try this one!

  2. I love lemon as much as honey – in a pound cake, I can already see I will be making this, hopefully for a crowd so that I don’t devour it all by myself. This looks yummy. Thanks.

    I would love so much to try this recipe. Do you think I can substitute extra honey instead of sugar. My husband is diabetic and honey does not seem to affect him the same way that sugar does. I try to find recipes that I can make for him and myself that have no sugar? Maybe I will just try it anyway and not put sugar. Thanks so much for this recipe. My mouth is watering right now just thinking about it.
