 Ingredients List

  • 2 1/2 c Flour
  • 2 c Sugar
  • 1 ts Baking powder
  • 1 1/3 c Buttermilk or sour milk
  • 1/2 c Shortening, butter or..
  • ..margarine
  • 1 ts Vanilla
  • 4 Egg whites


Preheat oven to 350F. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder,
baking soda, and 1/8 tsp. salt. Add buttermilk, shortening (butter or
margarine) and vanilla. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl.
Beat on medium to high speed for 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. ADd
egg whites and beat for 2 minutes more, scraping bowl.

Pour into 2 greased and floured 9 x 1/5 inch round baking pans. Bake for
30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on wire racks for
10 minutes. Loosen sides and remove from pans. Serves 12.

NOTE: One day my husband Pat wanted a marble cake. So, I improvised. To
make a marble cake from this recipe, simply reserve one third of the cake
batter before putting in the cake pans. Then, melt one square unsweetened
or semi-sweet chocolate either over boiling water or in the microwave oven.
Stir to blend. Add to the cake mixture and mix well. Put one half of the
chocolate batter in each cake pan in dollops, and swirl carefully, so as
not to mix the white batter with the chocolate. What you are trying to
achieve in a marble effect. Bake as directed. (BTW, this is GREAT!!)
