Directions

  1. Don't preheat oven. Grease and flour a 10 inch tube or Bundt pan. Sift together the all purpose flour and self-rising flour; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Alternately beat in the flour mixture and the milk, mixing just until incorporated. Finally, stir in the lemon extract and vanilla.
  3. Pour batter into a 10 inch tube or Bundt pan. Place cake in cool oven and set oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

One of the BEST pound cakes I've ever made! Very moist and delicious. I added 1 pkg instant lemon pudding along with 1 tsp lemon juice to the batter, and it was fabulous! Thanks for a great recipe! :o)

This is delicious. The ingredients don't list salt, but since I didn't have self rising flour, a substitute is to add baking powder and salt to all-purpose flour, which is what I did. No additional salt was required though. The only thing I should have done differently is keep it in the oven maybe 5 minutes less because the outside got a little too dark; other than that...perfect! Thanks Rhonda!

This recipe was very good. I didn't have self rising flour so I used all purpose and added 1/2 tsp. of baking soda. Cake came out great. I also don't like lemon, so I added Tsp of Orange and a Tsp of Vanilla. Wonderful Flavor.
