6 cups flour
3 tablespoons baking powder
1 1/2 cups crisco
4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups cake mix
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg -- slightly beaten
1/2 cup milk

Preparation / Directions:

In large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. With pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles cornmeal. Store in airtight container in cool, dry place. Use within month if possible. It does keep quite well if stored for a longer period of time. This is a great alternative to packaged mixes. Plain Cake: Stir ingredients for plain cake until well blended. Pour into 8-inch square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. For a 9 x 13-inch pan or layer cakes, double ingredients.
