Ingredients

1/4 c
soft butter
1/4 c
crisco shortening
1 1/2 c
sugar
3
beaten eggs
2 c
flour
1/4 tsp
salt
1 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
baking soda
2 tsp
nutmeg
1 c
buttermilk
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract

FROSTING

4 oz
cream cheese, softened
1/2 tsp
vanilla
1 c
confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 - 2 Tbsp
milk, or heavy cream

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with non stick cooking spray

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, shortening and sugar until well blended. Add the eggs and beat well.
2Sift together the flour, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, salt.
3Add the flour mixture to the shortening mixture, alternating with the buttermilk. Ending with flour. Blend in the vanilla.
4Spread into prepared baking pan.

Bake for 25 - 35 minutes, or until cake is golden and tests done with a pick.

Cool and serve with frosting or as my Gram did, with a pat of butter while warm.
5Frosting: - If you like a lot of frosting you may want to double the recipe...I just frost as served...

Whip the cream cheese on high for 1 minute until fluffy. Add vanilla and slowly stir in the confectioner’s sugar. Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until it reaches the right consistency. The icing will be thick but pourable.
