3 c. plain flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp. salt

3 c. sugar

5 eggs

8 oz. (2 sticks) butter

1/2 c. vegetable shortening

2 tsp. lemon flavoring

1 c. milk


1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese

1 lb. confectioners' sugar

Small amount of lemon juice required for spreading (about 2 tbsp.)

Sift flour, salt and baking powder together and set aside. Cream shortening, butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add 1 egg at a time, beating

for 1 minute after each addition. Add flavoring and beat. Add portions of dry ingredients alternately with milk. Beat until completely mixed. Pour mixture

into a greased and floured 10 inch tube pan and bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool before frosting.

Frosting: All ingredients should be at room temperature. Cream together cream cheese and sifted confectioners' sugar. Add lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon at a

time, until frosting reaches spreading consistency. Enjoy.
