This is our favorite yellow cake recipe. I usually don't get to put any icing on before it is gone.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1 cup shortening
- 2 cups white sugar
- 4 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 3/4 cups milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9 x 13 inch pan.
Cream together shortening and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Mix well. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake for 45 minutes, or until cake tests done. Cool.
