1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup shortening
1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups cake flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
6 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1-3/4 cups milk
3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 cup heavy cream, whipped

In a mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening and 1 cup sugar. Add lemon peel and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, mixing well after each addition; set aside.

Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold into the creamed mixture. Pour into three greased and waxed paper-lined 9-in. round cake pans. Bake at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool in pans 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

For filling, combine sugar and flour in a saucepan. Gradually add milk; cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Gradually stir a little of the hot filling into the yolks; return all to the pan. Bring to a gentle boil. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice, vanilla and peel. Cover and cool. Fold in the cream. Spread between each layer and on top of cake. Cover and chill.
