|# 18 of 33||next recipe »|
1/2 cup Crisco or vegetable shortening
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
Beat together Crisco and sugar. Add eggs, beating after each addition.
In a separate bowl or on a piece of waxed paper for easy pouring, stir together flour and baking powder. Pour 1/3 of the dry mixture into the bowl containing the beaten Crisco and sugar, beating slowly; add half the milk, and continue to alternate adding the wet and dry ingredients (1/3 more flour mixture, then the other half of the milk, then the rest of the flour mixture). Beat after each addition, but briefly only; do not overmix.
Separate the batter into portions and add food coloring to different batches if desired, then swirl together with a spatula to make rainbow cup cakes - a big hit with the kids!
Bake 350°f 20 minutes.
Makes 2 dozen.
