2 cups flour
3 tsps baking powder
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, separated
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla flavoring

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 round cake pans or 1 9x13-inch pan and set aside.

Sift flour and baking powder together into a large bowl. Add the shortening to the flour mixture and cream the ingredients together until light and fluffy. Beat the egg yolks separately and add to the creamed mixture one at a time alternating with the flour mixture and a small amount of the evaporated milk, continuing to cream after each addition until smooth. Beat the egg whites and add the vanilla to them. Combine with the batter mixture and continue to cream until all the ingredients are combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan or pans and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes (depending on which pans you use) or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool and frost with your favorite frosting.
