This is a wonderfully moist pound cake. I have tried countless recipes, but this one is without a doubt THE BEST!

The Best Pound Cake


  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


    1 Don’t preheat oven. Grease and flour a 10 inch tube or Bundt pan. Sift together the all purpose flour and self-rising flour; set aside.

    2 In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Alternately beat in the flour mixture and the milk, mixing just until incorporated. Finally, stir in the lemon extract and vanilla.

    3 Pour batter into a 10 inch tube or Bundt pan. Place cake in cool oven and set oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
