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