Malorie DavisA good pound cake recipe is one that every home cook or entertainer should have in their repertoire. It's appropriate for almost every kind of occasion and has so many pairing possibilities. Pound cake would fit in nicely on a brunch table, served with tea, cubed and added to a trifle, or for dessert.

It's ideal for entertaining, as it can be a beautiful centerpiece. It's also convenient to make this on a weekend and keep throughout the week for afternoon snacking. I'd even eat it for breakfast with coffee.

The best part about a citrus pound cake is that you can use any citrus you have on hand. While red grapefruit is my current favorite because it is unique, this same recipe can be made with lemon, orange or lime.

Lemon is a crowd pleaser; It can be paired with seasonal fruits and whipped cream. Orange can be a showstopper when paired with chocolate sauce. Lime is fun for summer and especially lovely paired with blackberries.



I use Greek yogurt in this recipe to reduce some of the butter. It makes for a perfect pound cake texture. I use good quality butter, as it has many health benefits as well. Plus, it would be hard to imagine a delicious pound cake without that buttery flavor.
