Ro Z's Citrus Pound Cake with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting - Instructions

For cake: Preheat oven to 350 F, and prepare pans with parchment circles and
lightly spray with baking spray. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream butter and
sugar until light and fluffy, approximately 3 minutes. Add baking emulsion, lemon
zest, lemon juice and mix well. Add eggs one at a time and mix until well
incorporated. Add flour and heavy whipping cream, alternating each a third at a time,
ending with the whipping cream. Mix until combines, but do not over mix, approximately
2 minutes.

Divide batter between pans. Bake in preheated oven for 38 to 40 minutes. Check cake at
38 minutes to make sure it is not over baking (cake will pull away from the edges).
Insert a cake tester or toothpick at the center of the cake. If toothpick removes
clean, then it is done. Place on cooling racks in pan for 15 minutes. Remove from pan
and let cake cool completely.
