Beat till creamy: 1 cup crisco shortening, 1/2 cup vegatable oil & 3 cups sugar.
Add 5 eggs ~~ one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Sift: 3 cups flour & a pinch of salt.
Mix in alternately, with 1 cup of milk.
Beat in 2 tsp coconut extract & 1 cup coconut. Mix thoroughly.
Pour into greased & floured tube pan. Bake at 350, for 1 1/2 hours. Cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean.

This recipe is NOT reccommended for a Bundt Pan ... it is a tall cake and too much batter for one of those pans.
