  Categories: Cakes
       Yield: 8 servings
       1 c  Butter
     1/2 c  Soft shortening
       3 c  Sugar
       5    Eggs
       3 c  All-purpose flour (Mama
            Always used Gold Medal)
       1 ts Baking powder
     1/8 ts Salt
       1 c  Milk
       1 ts Each vanilla and lemon
            Extract (Mama always
            Substituted almond
            For the lemon)
   Cream butter, shortening and sugar until very light and fluffy.  Then
   add eggs, one at a time until very creamy.
   Blend in flour, baking powder and salt mixture alternately with milk
   in small amounts, beating well after each addition.  Blend in
   flavorings. Turn into greased and floured 10-inch tube pan.  Bake in
   preheated oven 350 degrees 1 hour.  Turn off oven heat and allow cake
   to remain in oven 15 minutes longer.  (Or place cake in cold oven,
   set temperature to 300 degrees and bake 1 hour 40 minutes.)  Cake is
   done when cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.
   Cool 10-15 minutes in pan on cake rack, then remove from pan and
   finish cooling on rack.
   Delicious as is, dusted with confectioners sugar, or frosted with
   7-minute icing.
