  • Summary

    This rich, double-glazed pound cake is made in the classic French style. In fact, the recipe came from the Cordon Bleu cooking school in Paris. The two glazes, one apricot and one lemon, provide a sweet, decorative finish. The recipe yields two cakes -- so you can serve one today and save the other for "le weekend."

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more for pans
    • 2 2/3 cups sifted all-purpose flour, plus more for pans
    • 6 large eggs, room temperature
    • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • Grated zest of 1 lemon
    • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • 1 cup apricot jam
    • 1/4 cup Cognac, or freshly squeezed orange juice
    • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
