Baptist Pound Cake

Made a favorite recipe today.  I found it many years ago on the internet.  If you Google it you will find it everywhere.  It is so simple to make and tastes delicious.  Not sure how it got it's name.  Remember to put it in a COLD oven.  Enjoy!

Baptist Pound Cake

1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
1 stick butter or margarine, softened
3 cups sugar
5 large eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cream together shortening and butter; add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Sift flour and baking powder together three times. Add flour alternately with milk to creamed mixture, beginning and ending with flour. Stir in vanilla. Pour into a greased and floured tube pan and place in a cold oven. Turn oven to 350 degrees and bake 1 hour and 15 minutes.
