This was by far the best cake I have ever tried! Oh, man, you need to give it a try! Feel free to add more ingredients if you feel like it. I have listed all the ingredients and directions so all you need to do is to follow them step by step and you are good to go. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

3 c all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

¾ teaspoon salt

3 c sugar

1 c unsalted butter, room temperature

½ c shortening, room temperature

5 large Eggs

1 c whole milk

6 tablespoons lemon juice

1 lemon, ½ zested

Directions:

Step 1: Prepare the oven and preheat to 175 degrees C or 350 degrees F.

Step 2: Apply cooking spray and sprinkle flour in two loaf pans.

Step 3: In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the baking powder, flour, and salt.

Step 4: In the bowl of an electric mixer, add the butter, sugar, and shortening. Beat until creamy.

Step 5: Add the eggs gradually and beat every addition.

Step 6: Add the flour mixture and milk into the butter mixture alternately, then beat every addition.

Step 7: Add the lemon zest and juice. Beat until blended.

Step 8: Transfer the batter into the greased pans and spread it evenly.

Step 9: Place the pans inside the preheated oven and bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean after inserting it in the middle.

Step 10: Remove from the oven and allow the cakes to cool at room temperature for about 15 minutes.

Step 11: Serve and enjoy!

Notes:

Make sure that when you add the batter into the pan, do not overfill them. The batter will pop out once baked.

Bake any leftover batter.
