Lemon Pound Cake

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
3 cups sugar
5 large eggs
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
1 tablespoon lemon extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup milk

1/4 cup butter, softened
1-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in lemon peel and extract. Combine the flour, salt and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Beat just until combined.

Pour into a greased 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350 for 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. In a small bowl, combine the frosting ingredients; beat until smooth. Spread over top of cake. Makes 12-16 servings.
