Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Pound Cake

This recipe the Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Pound Cake is at least 40 years old, based on a comment from a reader.

We have reached out to Duncan Hines to see if they have a historian that can tell us the year but have yet to hear anything from them.

We have found several recipe cards in our collection for Duncan Hines Lemon Cakes, the names are different but they are close to the original Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Pound Cake recipe.

The Lemon Supreme Pound Cake is well over 60 years old. It was my grandmother’s signature cake. It’s now mine.

I’m not even asked what I’m bringing to any social gathering. It’s just announced “Jill’s bringing her lemon cake”.

I don’t use the icing called for. It’s far too heavy. Just like my grandmother, I make a glaze from confectioners sugar and lemon juice. I prick the cake with the fork so the glaze can enter the cake then dribble the glaze over the top.

I have several people who have graduated culinary school in my life. This is a favorite of all.

I’ve been using this recipe for about twenty years, never in cake form though. Always make “lemon bread “
