  1. Cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Alternating with milk, beat in flour, beginning and ending with flour. Add flavoring. Pour into three floured and greased 9 inch layer cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until done.
