Lemon Pound Cake for Marty

Today’s treat is in honor of one of my co-workers, Marty Smith. He and Ryan McGee host “Marty and McGee” on ESPN Radio Saturday mornings. They are fabulous, funny, kindhearted guys who’s show is among the best ESPN has to offer. I love doing updates during their show because the provide a relief from all the crappy stuff in the world. Anyways, Marty loves lemon Pound Cake and even though he is in North Carolina (along w Ryan), I brought that treat in today. It’s a simple recipe, courtesy of Duncan Hines. If you don’t want to make 🍋 frosting, by all means use the canned stuff.
