When Janelle shows up at The Berry Basket with disturbing news, Marlee is about to reach for a slice of Theo's blackberry lemon pound cake. Rest assured that once Janelle completed her unpleasant visit, Marlee did indeed find a little comfort in eating a slice of this delicious cake.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
Combine butter and sugar in a large bowl and stir.
Add eggs, lemon zest, and juice. Mix until well blended.
Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.
Add half to the butter/sugar mixture and stir until blended.
Add milk, then remaining dry ingredients. Stir until combined but don't over mix.
Gently fold in blackberries.
Pour batter into greased 8 x 4-inch loaf pan. Bake 50 - 60 minutes until golden and springy to the touch.
Cool in pan on wire rack.
Mix lemon juice and confectioners' sugar together and pour 3/4 over cake while warm. Allow to completely cool before removing to a serving platter.
If desired, thicken the remaining glaze with 2 tablespoons (or more as needed) to make an icing and drizzle over the cake.
*Chop the blackberries into small pieces, especially if your berries are large
