Fluffy, Not Fat

One of my favorite television entertainers says he is "fluffy" and not fat. Ha Ha, he is waaay overweight! But if he feels better calling himself "fluffy,"then he should do that.

The following cake recipe is fluffy. I won't try to figure out how "fluffy."

Fluffy Gold Cake (Memaw's)

2 cups flour
1 1/3 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup shortening
1/2 teaspoon lemon flavoring
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk
4 unbeaten egg yolks

Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Add shortening, lemon extract, vanilla, and 2/3 cup milk. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Add remaining 1/3 cup milk and egg yolks. Beat 2 minutes.
Pour into 2 round 8 inch layer cake pans that have been greased and floured lightly.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes.

Frost with chocolate, white, or caramel icing.

Still waiting for the Dutch IPad user to let me know if you were my 2,000th viewer.
