Developing recipes

Well, I'm making moves toward opening my cake decorating business/bakery, we decided to start testing recipes. When I say "we," i mean me, lol. But the taste testers are eager as well.

First up on chopping block, is my variation on Lemon Buttermilk Pound Cake.
Creaming the butter and sugar

Zesting the lemon
Adding eggs
Adding flour/buttermilk
Mixing between additions
My kitchen helper
Scraping down the bowl

Folding in vanilla and lemon zest
Pre-oven
In oven
Fresh out, can you see the steam???
Cooling
Moist and sweet
Taste test

So after the process of making the pound cake...

The taste testers agree with the baker, a keeper!!!

Have a great one,
Jae
