    I'd add some baking powder, vanilla and grated lemon peel in place of the extract as others have suggested.

    I was looking for something to use up all these farm eggs piling up around here. What a great way to use a dozen! I substituted a 1 oz bottle of eggnog extract for the lemon. Oh my.... delicious! The cake is huge tho... about 3 inches over my big angel pan! I'll try freezing half and we'll see how it freezes.

    Great pound cake! My family raved about it and not a crumb left. I used vanilla instead of lemon!

    Looks great. I agree that I'd rather use zest and lemon juice though...wonder how much I should add to replace a bottle of extract?

    I'm using lemon zest and juice instead of the extract because I just don't like the taste of extracts. I may use lemon essence.
