Marshmallow Cake

This is a very old recipe that belonged to my grandmother. I hope that you like it.

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two 9 inch layer cake pans.

2 Cream the shortening, add the sugar gradually.

3 Sift the flour, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk to the creamed mixture.

5 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.
