    Cream shortening; add the sugar and cream this well; then add the egg yolks.
    Sift dry ingredients together, then add alternately with a mixture of the milk and lemon extract. Pour this blended cake batter in 2 greased layer cake pans.(I cut circles of parchment paper in bottom of pans and then spray the paper before pouring in batter).
