Cold Oven Pound Cake

Possibly the best pound cake ever made! Recipe passed down from Mom, fine tuned over years of cooking. Excellent home dessert or gift for friend at Christmas or other occasion. Serve as-is or add icing. Especially good when still warm from cooking!

Grandmom's Cold Oven Pound Cake

1/2 lb butter - room temperature
1/2 cup shortening
3 cups sugar
3 cups sifted flour
1 cup milk
5 eggs - room temperature
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon
1/2 tsp salt

Mix butter, shortening, sugar to creamy consistency. Add 1 egg at a time, beat well after each. Add flour and milk 1/3 at a time - begin and end with flour. Grease bundt pan well, sprinkle with flour. Turn on oven to 350 degrees. Put cake pan in while oven still cool. Do not open oven door for approximately one hour and 15 minutes.

Enjoy! Try it while it's still warm!
