Are you a Lemon Lover?  This Lemon Pound Cake would be perfect for you.  Super Moist Pound Cake with a great lemon flavor.

Do you have Hiland Dairy products in your area?  If you live in Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas, you are probably already familiar with Hiland Dairy.  Did you know they not only make milk, cheese, ice cream, half & half, heavy cream, butter, buttermilk, dips, and yogurt, but they also distribute fresh fruit juices, Red Diamond Teas, almond milk, and soy milk?

Most of you already know that I live in Arkansas, and so I truly purchase Hiland Dairy products on a regular basis.  I was excited when they offered me some free products to use and try out in new recipes.   Yes, Hiland Dairy gave me products to use in these recipes. However the opinions expressed are my own.   Hiland Dairy is farmer owned.  They make delicious tasting products that are free of artificial growth hormones.   This is important to me which is why I love using their dairy products.

Lemon Pound Cake & Easter Milkshakes featuring Hiland Dairy

Spring Lemon Pound Cake

Lemon Pound Cake & Easter Milkshakes featuring Hiland Dairy

My favorite flavor for spring and summer is Lemon, which is why I chose to bake a Spring Lemon Pound Cake.   I have mentioned several times that my son Caleb has had seventeen brain surgeries and has cerebral palsy and seizures.  I started baking with him before he learned to walk.  He loves baking, and it helped him with his memory.  He is now seventeen and has had lots of practice baking pound cakes.  Over the years, I have made pound cakes with buttermilk and pound cakes with sour cream until one day I decided to use both sour cream and buttermilk in my pound cakes.  I love the taste, texture, and the incredibly moist cake this combination makes.  

Lemon Pound Cake

I have never blogged about our Lemon Pound Cake.  Since this pound cake recipe includes buttermilk, sour cream, and butter, it is the perfect recipe to feature using Hiland Dairy products.  After making the Lemon Pound cake, I added a lemon glaze on top.  I started to color the glaze using a few spring colors, but I found some colorful sprinkles instead.  My son Caleb was so excited to help me with the sprinkles I just had to use them.   If you decided to color the glaze or if you use this lemon flavored white glaze with colorful sprinkles, your cake will look beautiful for spring.

Chocolate Marshmallow Milkshake

Lemon Pound Cake //

Hiland Dairy has three new Milk Flavors for Easter, including Chocolate Marshmallow, Easter Eggnog, and Jelly Bean.  As soon as I saw these yummy sounding milk, I knew I would love to try making milkshakes with them.  I made a Chocolate Marshmallow Milkshake and an Easter Eggnog Milkshake.  Both milkshakes were a hit!  Using Hiland’s Easter Milks were a great, easy way to flavor a milkshake without adding anything but ice cream.

  • 2 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup Hiland Dairy Chocolate Marshmallow Milk
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • ¼ cup sugar
  1. Add the Chocolate Marshmallow Milk and the ice cream to a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  4. Whip the heavy cream with an electric mixer until thick.
  5. Add the sugar and continue whipping for another minute.
  6. After adding the milkshake to the glass, top with whipped cream.

    • Cathy,

      Coming from you and all the unbelievable delicious treats you cook, this is a huge compliment. Thank you so much for stopping by. I am going to try hard to visit Saturday Night Fever each week.

      Blessings and have a Wonderful Week!

  1. My goodness, that milkshake sounds phenomenal, Diane! My husband’s an ice cream-a-holic and would absolutely love that. The pound cake looks beautiful too, but the milkshake…oh, that beautifully delicious milkshake.

  2. All three of these recipes sound perfect to me. My dad loves eggnog, but not sure you can get any around here at this time of the year, as it only seems to be available in the late fall (Thanksgiving and Christmas time), but would so make that shake for him if I could find it. Thanks for sharing and totally pinned your post to try these when I can 🙂

    • Janine,

      Thanks for stopping by. This is a special Eggnog that Hiland Dairy makes. It takes like Eggnog with a hint of Easter Candy. It is really good. I truly appreciate your support. My numbers are still really down and it is getting frustrating.
      I hope you are doing well and having a great day.
      Diane Roark
