Although I haven't made this it looks extremely good:

This is my favorite pound cake and it's perhaps the easiest one that I've ever made:

Just omit the almonds and substitute lemon zest or lemon oil (food grade) for the vanilla. This even works with all purpose flour (plain flour). It makes a huge cake (it's sized for a 10-cup bundt pan).

Sorry, it's should be 12 cup. Yeah, it's one big cake. I've halved the recipe and it works just fine. No major adjustment to the baking time.

I have a recipe on my profile for "quatre quart", which is a French pound cake. Its quite versatile. I'd add the zest of a lemon into the batter and then put a simple glaze on top with the juice. A cup of confectioners' sugar and a few tablespoons of the juice should do.

I guess it's time to enter my Lemon Pound Cake on Food52, eh? It's really my favorite cake of all time. I'll try to do so today, so you can look on my page for it, if you like.

haven't followed all the suggested links, so this may be a duplicate. If not, there's a classic combination of lemon and poppy seed, which you can have in a loaf or a cake or a pound cake. here's one:
