Why I Love This Recipe

I got this recipe out of the newspaper in 1975. It is one of my favorite pound cakes. At times, I have used buttermilk in place of milk.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 sticks butter
1/2 cup shortening
3 cups sugar
5 well beaten eggs (should be thick and yellow)
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon flavoring
1 tsp butter flavoring
1 tsp coconut flavoring
1/4 tsp rum, orange, or almond flavoring

Glaze (optional):
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tsp of each of the flavoring used in the cake


Cream butter, shortening, and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the beaten eggs.

Combine the dry ingredients and add to the creamed mixture alternately with the milk.

Stir in the flavorings.

Spoon mixture into a greased and floured 10 inch tube pan or bundt pan.

Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 1 1/2 hours or until cake tests done.

For the glaze:

Bring to a boil until sugar is dissolved.

Spoon slowly over hot cake in the pan.

Let stand until cake is cool.
