Citrus Pound Cake

This recipe comes from Tammy Dean via my daughter, AJ and OH MY...it is so good. No glaze necessary on this cake. I typically use butter instead of margarine because margarine is just glorified plastic. Also, I copy/pasted this recipe as it came to me so what it doesn't define is the type of cake pan. A Bundt pan works great for this cake. No tube pan necessary. But do grease and flour well.

I made this just a few weeks ago and froze half of it. It was wonderful!
