Ma's One Egg Cake

Ma's One Egg Cake created by puppitypup

This was my Grandma's recipe. I believe it dates back to the depression. A moist and versatile cake that will please everyone. Really good with recipe #182807 or for strawberry shortcake or pineapple upside-down cake. You can double the recipe for a 10x13 pan or triple the recipe for a 12x16 pan.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Grease and flour a 9 inch x 9 inch pan.
  • Sift dry ingredients together.
  • Add shortening, the 2/3 cup milk, and the vanilla; beat for 2 minutes.
  • Add the 1/3 cup milk and egg; beat for 2 more minutes.
  • Pour into prepared pan.
  • Bake for about 45-50 minutes or until done. You might check a little earlier because my oven runs cool. If doubling or tripling the recipe, you'll have to increase the cooking time substantially.
  • UPSIDE DOWN CAKE:

  • If making pineapple upside down cake, use the strained juice in the batter, reducing the milk by the amount of juice used.
  • Drop pieces of butter and sprinkle brown sugar on pan.
  • Lay pineapple rings down.
  • Pour cake batter on top.
