Aunt Lucille's Buttermilk Pound Cake

I generally make this cake in the fall and winter months.... but I was TOTALLY craving this last week and just had to make it! I gotta tell ya, I'm not one who purchases pound cake @ the grocery store. If it's not homemade and fabulous like this one, I don't care to waste the calories. ;)

This one is WORTH IT!!!

3 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter (1 stick)
1/2 c. shortening
3 tsp. oil (vegetable or canola)
3 c. all-purpose flour
5 eggs
1 c. buttermilk
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. almond flavoring*

Cream butter and sugar. Mix in next 3 ingredients, then mix eggs in one at a time. Add remaining ingredients to mixture, stirring well. Bake @ 350F for 1 hour.

*You can substitute other flavorings if you want to play around with the taste... but the almond is fantastic!
