Golden Pound Cake

This past weekend with it being General Conference for our church, I wanted to have a really nice Sunday dinner and a dessert that was a little more on the light side (it's sad that I consider any cake to be on the lighter side, I mean who am I kidding, any dessert that I make is most likely NOT going to be Light at all!) Anyways, I had a bunch of strawberries on hand so I thought, what better to make than a pound cake paired with some strawberries and cream.  

1/2 cup butter (softened)
1/2 cup shortening
3 cups sugar
5 eggs
2 3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract

Cream together the butter, shortening, and sugar.  Add eggs 1 at a time to the sugar mixture, mixing well after each egg.  Add the dry ingredients, alternating with the milk and flavorings to the sugar mixture.  Pour into a 12 cup greased and floured bundt pan.  Bake @ *325 for an hour and 15 minutes.  Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes than finish cooling on a cooling rack.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with strawberries and cream.
