Yield: 1 Servings
|1⅞ cup||Cake flour|
|2½ teaspoon||Baking powder|
|½ cup||Vegetable Shortening|
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt; stir to blend; resift with sugar. Cut the shortening into the dry ingredients until the mixture looks crumbly. Label and store in a sealed plastic bag at room temperature. Makes 1 pakage mix. Each package makes two 8 or 9 inch layers or one 9 x 13 x 2 inch rectangle. TO USE: Pour 1 package of mix into a mixing bowl; add ¾ cup milk and 1¼ teaspoons vanilla extract. Using either an electric or manual rotary beater, beat at slow to medium speed for two minutes (by hand, beat 3 minutes averaging 135 strokes per minute). Scrape the sides of the bowl frequently as you beat. Add 2 eggs; beat 1 minute more (2 minutes by hand). Grease and dust with flour your choice of pan(s); spread batter evenly in pans. Bake round cake pans at 375 degrees F. for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean; bake the 9 x 13 x 2 inch pan for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool cake(s) for 10 minutes in their pan(s) before turning out on racks. WHITE CAKE Follow the same directions as for Yellow Cake replacing the 2 eggs with 3 unbeaten egg whites. Use an electric mixer for beating. SPICE CAKE Add to the package of Yellow Cake Mix: ¼ cup sugar, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, ½ teaspoon ground cloves, and a pinch of ground allspice.
Follow Yellow Cake directions. EXTRACT FLOVORED CAKES Replace the vanilla in either the Yellow or White Cake recipes with 2 to 3 teaspoons of the extract of your choice. You may want to add a few drops of food coloring for the flavors like lemon, orange, or cherry, etc. FRESH ORANGE CAKE Pour 1 package of Yellow Cake Mix into a bowl; add 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 tablespoon freshly grated orange peel (1 teaspoon dried). Squeeze the juice from 1 large orange and add to it enough water to measure 1 cup. Add this orange juice to the mix, beat for 2 minutes as directed previously; add 2 eggs; beat and bake as directed. CUPCAKES Pour cake batter into greased cupcake tins or tins lined with paper baking cups; fill ½ to ⅔ full. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 20 to 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Makes about 2= dozen. NOTE: To prevent a cake from sticking to its pan, put the pan on a wet towel to cool as soon as you take it out of the oven.

From kmeade@... Sun Aug 11 10:09:48 1996 Have you done a search on the Web? I don't have time to do a search today but if you do one and aren't sucessful I might have some time next week. Do you have some interseting recipes that you can share? Here are some that may interest you. Cannot vouch for where they came from. I picked them up on the net. Some may be Americanized. I usually eat my sushi out, I can get it carry out at several good places. These recipes may not be very good on their own but together they may be helpful. If there is anyone else on the list that is more knowlegable than I am please share your knowledge.
