Quick One Layer Yellow Cake
(A very light cake, perfect for a small family)
1 cup flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350?
Grease an 8 inch square baking pan. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add
shortening, milk and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add egg and
beat for 30 seconds more. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Allow cake to cool before
Powdered buttermilk does not have to be mixed
separately. I just add the powder with my flour and the water with the my other
liquids and let it mix in the batter.
