Gold Brick for a Belated Birthday

Don’t worry about the name of this cake… though it is a golden pound-cake style of dessert, it is by no means as dense as a brick, nor does it contain any eggs! This is the second product of my birthday / Christmas gift baking bonanza for my best friends James and Heather, whose birthdays I missed due to their school schedule and my Thanksgiving plans. This is James’ present, a rich, tangy lemon loaf cake with a light drizzle of raspberry icing. Again, a dessert I would love to have any time, if only my health would let me!
