Mama's Pound Cake

The cake is still in the oven, but I wanted to post the recipe before I lose it again and have to call mama again to get it.

2 sticks butter
1 cup shortening
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
1 cup milk
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup self rising flour

Pre-heat oven to 300 F. Cream the butter, shortening, and sugar. Add eggs one at a time and vanilla and beat well. Finally, you will add the flour and milk. Start with a little of your flour and then a little bit of milk. Alternate until everything is incorporated, but make sure you start and finish with the flour. Bake for 2 hours in a greased and floured bundt pan.

Thanks for the cake! It was so good with the hot cinnamon apples on it.
