"This is a good cake for a family party; for larger parties, bake two cakes. This recipe is at least 50 years old. You may substitute 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest for the vanilla."

  3. Beat egg whites until foamy. Add 1/2 cup of the sugar gradually, and continue beating only until meringue will hold up in soft peaks.
  4. Cream shortening. Add remaining 1-1/4 cups sugar gradually, and cream together until light and fluffy. Add flour alternately with milk, a small amount at a time; beat after each addition until smooth. Stir in vanilla. Add meringue, and beat thoroughly into batter. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan or pans.

I made this cake yesterday for my in-laws' 35th anniversary and it went over very well! One guest thought it was the best cake she's ever had. I made the cake with 2 round layers and it served 16. I used the White Cake Frosting I recipe to frost, and for the filling between the two layers, I mixed 2/3c raspberry preserves with 2t Grand Marnier. Great cake - thanks!
