Why I Love This Recipe

If you are a fan of malted milk than this is one to try. I got it from Cooks last year and have made it numerous times. I do add just a tad more malted milk and have also made it with chocolate frosting on several occasions. Both the chocolate and the frosting that came with it is good.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 eggs-separated
3/4 cup shortening
1½ c. sugar
4½ heaping tsp. malted milk powder ( I use 2 tablespoons)
½ tsp. vanilla ( I use Wakins double strength vanilla)
½ tsp. salt
1½ tsp. baking soda
1½ c. buttermilk
2 3/4 cups cake flour
Creamy Frosting
2 tbsp. rounded flour
1 c. water
½ c. shortening
¼ lb. butter
1 c. granulated sugar
1 tbsp. vanilla


NOTE*works bettr if eggs and buttermilk are room temp.

Cream shortening and sugar, add egg yolks. Beat and add malted milk powder, salt, vanilla. Dissolve soda in the buttermilk and add alternately with the flour. Beat good.

In separate bowl beat egg whites until it peaks. Then fold in fold in the egg whites into batter by hand. Pound out air bubbles. Bake at 350º for 20-25 minutes. Makes 3 9-inch pans.

Creamy Frosting

Cook flour and water until a thick paste, set aside and let cool. Mix shortening, butter, sugar until creamy. Then add cooled flour mixture. Add vanilla and beat well.
