Yellow Cake (Three Egg Cake)

A yellow cake from scratch. Recipe from Great Grandma's Good Housekeeping Cookbook.

Yellow Cake (Three Egg Cake)
3 C. sifted flour (use cake flour if you can find it, if not, sift or fluff your flour with a spoon before measuring)
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3/4 c. shortening
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 eggs, well beaten
3/4 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine flour, baking powder and salt, set aside.  In a mixing bowl, cream together shortening and sugar.  Add eggs and mix well.  Add flour mixture and milk alternately in thirds, beating well after each addition. (More on how to do this here.)  Stir in vanilla. Bake in a 9x13 at 350 degrees for 40 min. or in layer pans for about 25 min.
