Do you have a recipe for Starbucks Lemon Pound Cake?

A friend asked me if I'd ever had Starbucks lemon pound cake.
"No, never had anything other than coffee/tea/steamers."
Since she knows cooking is a favorite past time, she asked if I could find her a recipe for the closest thing to their recipe.

I've gone online and found the same copycat recipes you'll find if you seek too. I'm
trying to find one that real cook enthusiasts have made with success.

If that's you please post. I do have an incredible pound cake recipe but am sure it's more Sara Lee than Starbucks.

      Oh I will French Roast. I am going to make the one that I found, it seems to be the only one that is out there that I can find. All other posts all take me back to same recipe. It's got a "poke and drizzle syrup" over it and sounds very much like my favorite recipe for carrot cake that I'm not at liberty to devulge.
      If it turns out that this is the only one that enters this post "my already found version" I'll give it to her as a gift. Of course I'll make one for me as well.

        found it and made it last night.
        I gotta get the link. here it is
        it's time consuming to say the least.
        but well worth it.
        hint, if you want it to look right, it's gotta go in the 16 cup bundt pan like the OP of this site says to do it in.
        I did it in 2 regular loaf pans and 2 mini loaf silicone pans and they are not tall enough.
        I'll see if I can take a photo of the mini we cut into last night and post it.

            Fwiw, Ina Garten has a wonderful lemon loaf cake in her "Parties" book. I like it better than Starbucks.

            1. re: petitgateau

              I posted last night but it never appeared.
              Ina Gartens recipe is easy to find as it's all over
              the Internet. I did see it and read it.

              This recipe I did use (where the pictures above coincide) although I plan
              on a minor tweak or 2, is what the lady at work asked for.
              It's as close as I can come. I did what was asked of me
              and am very pleased with the results as is she.
              Thanks for input.
