My Mother's Pound Cake
My Mother is alot like me. If I know something, then it doesn't need to be written down because I'm probably the only one that will need it. On many of her cards, she only has the ingredients. No instructions. Did you hear that...you get to guess. Luckily on this one she went back and added baking time but that didn't happen on all of them. I think it's cool. Kind of adds to the fun of going through that little metal box.
You can see the what you need above. I did switch lemon extract for the coconut. It doesn't really change any flavor. I creamed the butter, shortening and sugar. Mixed the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, slightly beat the eggs and add the milk.
Alternate adding the dry and wet ingredients to the creamed butter, starting and ending with the dry. Pour into a greased and floured bundt pan. And this is what you get...
