Lemon Cake with Chocolate Frosting

I made this cake for my kids to take over my ex husband's house for his birthday. They brought us a piece & it was YUMMY!!! So good & you know it doesn't have all the chemicals that are probably in the box mixes. I made it in a bundt pan & drizzled the chocolate sauce over the top & looked fancy too!

Lemon Cake:

3 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
3 cups sugar
1 cup butter (room temp)
1/2 cup shortening (room temp), I used butter flavored shortening
5 large eggs
1 cup milk
6 tbsp lemon juice
1 lemon zested

Spray flour cooking spray on bundt pan

Add all ingredients together & mix until blended. Pour batter into pan. Bake at 350 degree's until center comes out clean, about an hour. Cool in pan.

Chocolate Frosting:

2 3/4 cups confectioners sugar
6 tbsp. butter
5 tbsp evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
6 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Add Dry ingredients in bowl. Beat other ingredients in until blended. You can change texture by adding more sugar or milk to taste. Pour over cooled cake (which is popped out of pan right side up). Enjoy!!!
