Mint-Lemon Pound Cake

Y'all I am back. Last week I took a little sabbatical to just enjoy life. I ate up the little moments. BK's new smile, the 3 new words she started saying, dinners with my husband, pretty afternoons sunbathing in the backyard. It was wonderful and it was much needed. 
I spent a day on blog organization and flow. I've decided that my week will look like this:
Monday - Recipes
Tuesday - BK + Motherhood
Wednesday - Lifestyle
Thursday - Lifestyle
Friday - Fashion / DIY / Randoms
Hopefully those are all things that will interest you. My advertising spots got a makeover and I'm pretty excited about them. Take a look, this week you can get 30% off using code REVAMP. 

I also made a super delicious Mint-Lemon Pound Cake that I am super excited to share the recipe... 

1 box yellow cake mix
1 package lemon pudding mix 
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
8 oz. sour cream
6 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice (it took me 3 lemons)
1/4 cup fresh mint + more for garnish

2.5 cups powdered sugar
4 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice 
1 - 2 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease your pan. Mix cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, and milk. Add mint, oil, sour cream, and lemon juice to a blender. Blend until smooth. Add mint mixture to cake mixture. Pour into pan. Bake on middle rack for 35-40 minutes or until knife comes out of cake clean. Run butter knife around the edge of pan for easier removal. Let cake cool for ten minutes.

For glaze add all icing ingredients together until preferred consistency. Pour glaze over cake. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and add mint for garnish. 

{Mine didnt have a very strong mint taste coming through so feel free to add more if you want a stronger taste}
