Lemon Lime Soda Pound Cake


I have seen recipes in the past that feature the use of soda in them.
I have always wondered how those cakes with soda in them work out.

Technically, soda is basically sugar with some flavoring that have been added to water with some fizz.
Sure, there may be a few more ingredients than sugar, water, and flavoring. But, it is the sugar, water, and flavoring that are the essential ingredients in soda that can be used in other recipes.

The typical pound cake is known as a cake that can be served to just about anyone at any time.
Pound cakes really are without frills. Most pound cakes do not come with fancy frosting or fun elements added to make them look pretty. Pound cakes are just sliced and served.

We see pound cakes served a lot when there is nothing really big to celebrate.
I am not sure that I have seen a pound cake served at a wedding or a birthday party. I know that I have seen pound cakes served at a tea or served as a simple dessert.

If you do not want to serve you pound cake, dare I say, naked, there are ways to dress your cake up.
The simplest way to dress up your pound cake is to just dust some powdered sugar on top. A simple sugar glaze to the top of the pound cake is another popular way to present it. If you are in a really chocolaty mood, you can always melt some chocolate and drizzle it on the top of your pound cake for some excitement. I would recommend a white chocolate rather than a brown chocolate for a pound cake like this one as this cake already has a lot of flavor in it that would most likely compete with the darker chocolate.

This pound cake is really an easy one to make.
That is the whole idea. A simple and quick pound cake recipe that is a bit of fun to make as we are using soda in the recipe. I like when I can experiment with ingredients that I have on hand rather than having to run to the store for a needed ingredient.

What do you serve you pound cake with?
I have a relative who loves to have their pound cake with a bit of vanilla ice cream on top. There is something about the cake soaking up that melting ice cream that does sound pretty tasty.
