How To Make Air Fryer Iced Lemon Pound Cake
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Slowly add the eggs, sour cream, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla extract.
Mix in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.
Spray your baking pans with olive oil. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, about 2/3 way full. Set the pan into the air fryer, and set the temperature to 320 degrees F for 20 minutes.
When the time is up, place a toothpick in the pound cake, and check to see that the toothpick comes out clean. If not, add another 5 minutes.
Let cool slightly before adding the icing. To make the icing simply, whisk together in a small bowl the sugar, lemon juice, and milk. Spread over the cooled pound cake.
- My recipe works best in mini loaf pans; if you make a mini loaf, the center will get cooked; if you make a regular-sized loaf, the middle may have a hard time cooking.
- The lemon icing goes well. If you want less of them, add less lemon juice. If you want it more lemony, add more.
- If you find that the top of your quick bread is getting browned on top, but the middle is still raw, add a piece of foil on top.
- This recipe works in both an air fryer oven or an air fryer basket. If you use an oven, place the loaf pan on the lowest shelf.

This lemon loaf will stay fresh for about 3 to 4 days if you cover it and place it on the counter. For any longer, you should tightly wrap and refrigerate the loaf cake.
For best results, let the lemon pound cake reach room temperature before eating.
How To Freeze This Air Fryer Iced Lemon Pound Cake
This is great make-ahead bread; you can double the recipe and freeze some. To freeze, wrap it tightly in saran wrap and then wrap it in foil.
Place the wrapped-up loaf into the freezer; it will freeze for 1 to 2 months.
To use from frozen: Place the frozen loaf into the refrigerator; it will thaw overnight. It is best not to ice the lemon pound cake before freezing.
