Sour Cream Lemon Loaf

I’m responsible for the snacks at this month’s team mtg, at work.  It’s a great opportunity to try this Sour Cream Lemon Loaf – from my mom’s recipe file.  It’s pretty easy, especially if you keep a box of pound cake mix in the pantry- which I will after tasting this. Don’t skip the glaze – it makes all the difference!!  I’ll add a bowl of fruit for those people trying to be ‘good’ and I’m done!
