    Title: Easy Mix Cake

    Long time family favorite. This recipe was provided by the Pet Milk Company for Home Economics Class in high schools in the 1950's.

    3 c. flour
    2 c. sugar
    4 tea baking powder
    1 tea salt
    1 c. Crisco
    1 1/3 c. milk
    2 tea vanilla
    4 eggs

    In a large bowl add flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, crisco, milk, vanilla. Beat hard 2 minutes with mixer. Add eggs and beat hard for 2 minutes more. Grease and flour 8"x12" long cake pan. Pour cake mix into pan. Bake 350 for 40 min. or untill done. This is wonderful without frosting. Can serve warm with or without butter. My children loves this made into cup cakes. Can add a drop of food coloring into each cup cake and let the children stir with a tooth pick making a marbled effect. Can add chopped pecans into the cup cake batter. Wonderful rainy day activity for the little ones. My children would stand around the oven waiting for this special treet.
