Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

Preparation:

Beat butter in a large bowl at medium speed of an electric hand-held mixer; gradually add oil, beating until well blended. Gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour. Mix just until blended after each addition.
