Lemon Pound Cake

I searched the internet for a lemon pound cake recipe other than the two (martha stewart and ina garten) I have made before which are very good, but i wanted something different. I noticed this recipe because of the sour cream. My favorite chocolate cake has sour cream so i thought i would give this lemon a try. It was very good.
Lemon Pound Cake
1 cup butter, softened
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
5 TBSP lemon juice, fresh
1 TBSP grated lemon peel
1 tsp lemon extract
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups sour cream
1/4 cup sour cream
1 TBSP butter, softened
1 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
3 TBSP lemon juice
2 tsp grated lemon peel
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Stir in lemon juice, peel and extract. Combine flour, soda, and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream. Beat just until combined.
Pour into greased and floured bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 55 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan and wire rack to cool completely.
For icing, in a small bowl, beat sour cream and butter until blended. Gradually add confectioners' sugar. Beat in lemon juice and peel. Drizzle over cake. Store in fridge.
