Posted by BrickflorI found this a couple of years ago and have been using it ever since. I have recently started adding other flavorings instead of vanilla with some great results!
8 ingredient Yellow Cake
- 1 c. shortening 2 c. sugar 4 eggs 2 tsp. vanilla 2 3/4 c. flour 3 tsp. baking pwd. 1 tsp. salt 1 3/4 c. milk
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour pan(s) or spray with baking spray. Cream together shortening and sugar, then add eggs and vanilla. In separate bowl mix dry ingredients. Alternate adding the milk and flour to the shortening mixture. Pour in pan(s) and bake 40-45 mins. Use either a 9x13, 2 8" or 2 9" pans. If making a 2 layer 10", make a recipe and a half.
