  • TOPPING:
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel

Directions:

  • In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in lemon peel.
