How to Make Basic Vanilla Cake

  2. Add flavoring to milk and set aside.
  3. Cream together shortening, butter, sugar and mix until light and fluffy about 5 minutes.
  4. With mixer on low add eggs one at a time mixing well after each one.

  6. Pour into 2-3 prepared 8 or 9 inch pans or cupcake liners filling them only half way.
  7. Bake in a 325 degreese oven until toothpick is inserted and comes out with moist crumbs.
