3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
2 2/3 cups white sugar
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon extract
- Do not preheat the oven. Grease 10 inch tube pan and line bottom with wax paper or parchment paper.
- Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, beat the butter, shortening, and sugar on low speed for 10 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, blending well after each addition. Alternately add the flour mixture and milk, mixing well. Add the vanilla and lemon extracts.
- Pour batter into the prepared pan. Set the oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C. Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of cake comes out clean. Allow cake to cool in the pan for 1 hour. Remove to a cake rack and cool for at least 3 hours.
It was absolutely delicious!!! I didn't have any lemon extract but it was fine without it! The outside of the cake with nice,sweet and crispy!!!! I used a Silicone Bundt Pan and it came out perfect and easily. I didn't line it with anything, simply sprayed it good with vegetable oil and sprinkled some flour on it. I put some homemade Jam on the top when I served it! All of the kids loved it and so did the hubby! I will definitely be making this again!!
