This is not an original recipe. My mother attended a meeting about 15 years ago, and a chef from Charleston was the featured speaker. He prepared this dish and everyone raved about it, and my mother has been making this ever since. I have made this dish many times, too, and I always get requests for the recipe.
First, you will need a pound cake. I made my mother-in-law’s pound cake, whose recipe can be found here. But if you don’t have time to bake one, you can always buy one in the bakery section of the grocery store.
Next, add 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice to the mixture and beat until everything is incorporated. If you are worried about using uncooked egg yolks in this recipe, don’t worry. No bacteria is going to grow in such an acidic environment!
