"I made this recipe up many years ago when I was wanting a pound cake recipe that wasn't so dry. There is no salt or baking powder or soda called for. This makes a very large pound cake and gets its volume from beating. If you have a stand mixer, let it run the whole time you put the ingredients together. This cake always gets requested and raved over."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating very well after each. Stir in the lemon extract and vanilla. Beat in the flour alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated.
  3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 75 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool, then drizzle with lemon glaze.
  4. To make the lemon glaze: Put the confectioners' sugar into a small bowl. Mix in lemon juice, a teaspoon at a time, until desired drizzling consistency is achieved.
