Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Crisco
1½ cup Sugar
3 cups Flour

1 cup Water
1 teaspoon Flavoring
Whites of 3 eggs

Cream Crisco. Add sugar slowly and cream together. Sift dry ingredients and add alternately with the liquid. Add flavoring, beat mixture thoroughly and last fold in stiffly beaten whites of eggs. Prepare layer-cake tins by greasing them with a mixture of Crisco and flour. Pour in cake mixture; put in moderate oven, allow to rise for five minutes, increase heat to bake; at the end of fifteen minutes, reduce heat to allow cake to shrink from pan.

Entire time for baking twenty minutes. NOTE: I copied this faithfully from the source, THE WAYS OF COOKING" circa 1919 from Crisco.
