I used the William Sonoma citrus loaf pan, and in 65 minutes the middle was still a bit wet. My mistake in an overpour of lemon juice and vanilla. Added 2T lemon zest, and the flavor overall was great. I will attempt this again with correct proportions. Served with a warm mixed berry sauce; family and friends gave the thumbs up.

I used the Williams Sonoma citrus pound loaf pan and it turned out beautifully. The only thing I did differently was to add a little extra citrus extract and to be honest the pound loaf still turned out buttery with only a very hint of citrus. I highly recommend this recipe and the pan and would be happy to use again.

The recipe is delicious and moist… if you’re looking for a stronger lemon flavor add the zest of 1 lemon.

I used the yellow lighter weight Citrus loaf pan; my cake turned out just fine. But, I cooked mine for 68 minutes before the toothpick came out clean. It was delicious and I will use it again!
