12 portions
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3/4 cups milk, with a few drops of lemon
  • lemon zest, from 2 lemons
  • 1 cup lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice, for the glaze


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (356F) with the rack in the bottom of the oven.
Grease and flour 2 elongated pound cake molds.
Add a few drops of lemon to the milk and mix with the rest of the lemon juice, and grated peel.
In a bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
With an electric mixer, beat the butter at medium speed.
Add sugar to butter and beat until fluffy.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating until everything is incorporated.
Reduce the speed to low and add the flour mixture in three parts, alternating with the milk (starting and ending with the flour).
Beat quickly until everything is incorporated (do not over beat).
Divide the mixture between the two greased and floured molds.
Bake for 50-60 minutes or until you insert a toothpick into the center and it comes out dry.
Let cool for 15 minutes in the mold.
Unmold and let cool completely.
Prepare the glaze: put the icing sugar in a bowl and add 3 tablespoons of lemon juice, stir well with a balloon whisk. Add more lemon juice if necessary.
Put the pancakes on the rack and add the glaze on top.
Let the glaze harden for 30 minutes.

Hola, yo lo realicé y es muy rico, solo que la cantidad de azúcar y limón es demasiada, queda de sabor muy fué. Mi sugerencia sería ajustar a una taza de azúcar y media taza de jugo de limón
