  • Combine sugar, flour, eggs, shortening, whole milk, vanilla extract, lemon extract, and baking powder in a large bowl; pour into the prepared pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

This can also be made in a fluted tube pan (such as Bundt(R)).

Buttermilk can be used in place of the whole milk.
