Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the sour cream, vanilla and lemon extract. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.

this cake is easy to make and has a good flavor however, if you find it a bit dry add powdered sugar and butter together over low heat until you get a buttery glaze add a little lemon extract if you wish,and pour over warm cake. example; 1cup p.sugar to 1/3 cup butter but make it simple make as little or as much glaze to your cake as you wish .

This cake is fool proof! I did tweek it bit to fit me. I added lemon zest to it, I also used margarine out the fridge instead of the shortening. The cake came out wonderful. I think this recipe is great for the least experinced baker to an old pro

This is a lovely recipe! I did not have any butter flavoured shortening, so I just used butter and it turned out fine. I added a tad more lemon extract also then what was called for. I halved the recipe and put it in a bundt pan instead of a tube pan. The glaze I used consisted of melted butter, confectioner's sugar, milk and lemon extract. Will definately make again!
