Yellow Cake



 
Living as far as I do away from town, I always try to have my pantry stocked so that I don't have to make a lot of  long trips into town.
Although I enjoy using cake mixes......they are always good and convenient, I still love to make cakes from scratch. This recipe is so good and comes in handy if you have company coming and don't have a mix on hand.
It is great frosted, but also great to use as a cake for strawberries and whipped cream.
 
Yellow Cake Mix
2/3 cup Butter Flavor Crisco
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsps. vanilla
2 3/4 cup flour
2 1/2 tsps. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups milk
 
Preheat oven to 350.F degrees. Grease and flour 13x9x2 inch pan or two 9 inch round pans or line cupcake tins. Set aside.
In large mixing bowl cream Butter Flavor Crisco, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add flour, baking powder, salt and milk. Beat at low speed until blended. Beat at medium speed 2 minutes. Pour into prepared pans.
Bake at 350 F. oblong or layers....35 minutes, cupcakes for 25 minutes or until center springs back when touched lightly. Cool completely. Frost as desired.
