3 scant c. granulated sugar
5 eggs
2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 c. evaporated milk
1/2 T vanilla extract
1 lemon

Cream together butter, margarine and sugar into a large bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

In a separate bowl sift flour and salt.

Into a measuring cup (or a third bowl) pour the milk, vanilla and juice of the lemon.

Alternately with the milk mixture, add sifted flour mixture to the batter (batter is the sugar, egg, butter, margarine mixture). Start and finish with the sifted flour mixture.

Pour cake batter into a greased, lightly floured bunt pan.

Turn oven onto 300 and bake for approximately 1 hour and fifteen minutes.

Top pound cake with Aunt Anna's Easy Chocolate Icing.....mmmm!
