♥ Delicate Lemon Pound Cake ♥

Linda, this one's for you! ;)

 

Ingredients:


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2-1/2 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup lemon-lime soda
  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions:


  • In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in extracts. Add flour alternately with soda, beating just until combined.
  • Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan (pan will be full). Bake at 325° for 1-1/4 hours or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10-20 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners' sugar.
  • Yield: 12 servings.
