I baked this Tuesday morning for my Bible Study.  A new recipe for me and, I happened to have all of the ingredients on hand. *FLAIR TIP: Serve warm right from the oven with good coffee.  NOTHING LIKE IT!  Do not forget to invite a friend over or a neighbor. Extending hospitality to someone is extremely kind. By simple kind acts, we encourage our friends and spurn them on. 

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup Crisco
3 cups sugar
5 large eggs
3 1/2 cups flour, sifted
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
*7 ounces Sundrop soft drink 
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Cream butter, shortening, and sugar in a large bowl.  Add eggs one at a time. Stir in flour slowly.  Add vanilla, lemon extract and Sundrop *(may also use Mountain Dew or Mello Yellow).  Stir well. Pour into buttered and floured bundt or tube pan. Bake 1 hour 20 minutes.
