Why I Love This Recipe
My neighbor, who is like a grandmother to me, threw me a wedding shower when my husband and I got married 20 years ago. Each of the guests had to bring a recipe for me. This is the recipe I got from my neighbor.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 1/2 cups butter or margarine at room temperature
3 cups sugar
5 lg eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp lemon extract or 1 tsp lemon zest
1/2 tsp almond extract
7/8 cup ginger ale or similar soda
Cream butter until light. Cream in sugar, beat until fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Beat in 1 cup flour then add extracts and a little ginger ale. Continue adding flour, alternating with ginger ale until all are used. Pour batter into 2 greased and Reynolds Parchment Paper lined 9x5" loaf pans, or 1 greased and floured 10" bunt pan. Bake 1hr 45 mins. (if using bunt pan, baking time will be slightly longer). Let cool in pan
