Measure Ingredient
When I first met my best friend Nancy Cunningham, and she decided to
Take me under he wing and teach me how to cook, she gave me this recipe
That she had been given by her mother Dorothy Hall. I cut my 'cooking
Teeth' with this recipe.. 8-}
2 cups Flour
2 teaspoons Baking powder
¾ teaspoon Salt (optional)
1¼ cup White sugar
½ cup Shortening (butter or margarine)
1 cup Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 eaches Eggs, unbeaten
Nuts and raisins

Cream margarine and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat. Add milk, beat. Add dry ingredients and beat. Continue beating until the mixture turns creamy white. (Can sometimes take a good 5 minutes or so) Add raisins and nuts if desired. Pour batter into 8x8 greased pan and bake at 350F for about 30 minutes. This is a great basic cake recipe. I have used it as a base for spiced and chocolate cakes, upside down cakes, and it makes wonderful cupcakes. Just remember to beat it until it turns a nice creamy consistency and you can't ever have it fail on you! This is the only cake recipe that I use consistently and have used it for many years now.
