1-2-3-4 Cake (1959)

"A recipe repeated by popular request in our cookbooks for almost half a century."
  • 1 cup Crisco
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups sifted cake flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tspns double-acting baking powder
  • 1/2 tspn salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tspn vanilla
Cream Crisco and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add mixed dry ingredients alternately with the milk, beating after each addition. Stir in the vanilla.

Pour batter into an oblong pan, 13-x-9-x-2-inches, lined with plain paper, rubbed with Crisco and floured. Bake in moderate oven, 350 degrees, about 1 hour.  Cool cake in pan on rack about 15 minutes. Before removing, loosen sides from pan with spatula. Place rack over cake in pan, and invert together.

Cool, spread with frosting, or cut in squares and top with fruit or your favorite sauce.
