3/4 cup Crisco shortening

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 cups sugar

3 cups all-purpose flour, divided

4 eggs

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 (3-ounce) package instant lemon pudding mix

1 (12-ounce) can 7-Up


Icing Ingredients

1-1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

4 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream shortening and add oil and sugar, beating well. Mix in 1-1/2 cups flour and 2 eggs. Add remaining flour and 2 eggs, mixing well. Add baking powder, pudding mix, and 7-Up. Pour into 3 greased and floured 9-inch round pans. Bake 25 minutes. Cool about 5 minutes in pan. Invert cakes onto wire racks and cool completely.
