Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9-inch fluted tube pan (such as a Bundt®).
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl; sift the flour mixture twice into a separate bowl. Cream butter, shortening, and sugar in another large bowl until smooth; stir eggs and milk into creamed mixture until thoroughly combined.
  3. Gradually mix flour into moist ingredients to make a smooth batter; stir lemon and vanilla extracts into batter. Continue mixing until no sugar granules are visible. Pour batter into prepared tube pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until top is springy and cake is set in the center, about 90 minutes. Let cake cool in the pan until sides separate from pan; turn out onto a rack to finish cooling.

This was a good pound cake though I cannot vouch for the baking time. There are only the two of us, so I baked this is muffin tins for 20 minutes so I could freeze the little cakes for future use. Tasty as a base for fresh strawberries and whipping cream. Thanks for sharing!
