This was past down to me from my grandfather on my father's side (May be older than that).

Servings: 20 Change to: US Metric

(butter, eggs, flour, lemon, milk, sugar, vanilla)

1 pound butter
4 cups flour
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon lemon extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract (not in original recipe)


Cream butter, slowly add sugar 1/2 cup at a time, creaming between additions. Add eggs one at a time mixing well between additions. Add Milk and mix well. Add the flour 1/2 cup at a time. Mix will be very thick at this point. Add flavors.

Cook in a greased Angelís food cake pan (with removable bottom) for 90 minutes at 350 degrees F. At end of time shut off oven and allow to cool without opening door (this helps form a firm top crust, my favorite part).

Try adding chocolate chips.
