Mother’s Day is just a few days away and this Citrus Pound Cake would be the perfect dessert for the occasion. My mom loves to be pampered on Mother’s Day and every year she would request that we cook a home cooked meal rather than go out. That has always been her request so we would prepare quite the spread complete with dessert! It was a small way of showing our appreciation and we were more than happy to do it. She’s not a lover of too sweet desserts so this Citrus Pound Cake would be perfect for her. It’s buttery with a hint of citrus from the lime, grapefruit and orange peels. The citrus icing is the sweetest part and you can easily use less or eliminate it all together, even though I highly recommend keeping it because it’s delicious! How do you celebrate Mother’s Day? Do you stay in or eat out?
