Ayesha Curry’s Amaretto Pound Cake With Lemon Glaze

Ingredients for Cake:

Confectioners’ sugar for dusting the muffin tin

1½ cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp kosher salt

1 packed cup dark brown sugar

3 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten

1 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt

½ cup extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil

¹/³ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 tbsp amaretto

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 tsp bitters, such as Angostura

2 tbsp grated lemon zest

Ingredients for Glaze:

1 cup confectioners’ sugar

2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

½ tsp bitters, such as Angostura

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Oil a 4-inch by 8-inch loaf pan and dust with confectioners.

2. In a small bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt.

3. In a larger bowl, whisk brown sugar, eggs, yogurt, oil, lemon juice, amaretto, vanilla, bitters and lemon zest. Using a spatula, gently mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until smooth.

4. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Let it cool for about 10 minutes, then unmold and cool completely on a wire rack.

5. Make the glaze: In a bowl, whisk confectioners’ sugar, lemon juice and bitters until smooth and creamy. Once the cake has cooled to room temperature, pour glaze over the top. Slice and serve.
