Elderflower Lemon Pound Cake

Sometimes things just don't turn out well. This cake has a wonderful premise. Lemon and elderflower sound like they would be delicious with a pound cake. Lemon and elderflower syrup are delicious together, but they are not so good when combined with a mediocre pound cake.

I got this recipe from the Kitchn. The cake turned out a little dry and the middle fell in. Upon doing a little research, the Crusader discovered that if a cake is cooked at too low a temperature it can fall in the middle. If you would like to try this recipe, try cooking it at 350 rather than 325 for a little less time.

The cake tastes ok, but I am not sure that I want to waste the calories eating just an ok cake. I should stick with pie.
