This is my Mom’s recipe from about 1930. It rises high in the tube pan, is moist, and smells heavenly baking.

Old Fashioned Pound Cake II

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups shortening
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons lemon extract

Instructions

    1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan. Sift together the flour and salt. 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. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated. Beat in the vanilla and lemon extract. Pour batter into prepared pan.

    3 Bake in the preheated oven for 90 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.
