Why I Love This Recipe

When I get bored, I cook. Whatever we have in the kitchen, I cook it up into something at least semi-appetizing, and that's how I stumbled upon this recipe :)

It leaves something to be desired. It's definately an, "I need something sweet and now" dessert, but will satisfy such whims ;)

Ingredients You'll Need

2/3 c Sugar
1/4 c Shortening
1/4 ts Salt
1 ts Vanilla
1 Egg
1 1/2 c Flour
1/2 c Milk
2 ts Baking powder


Cream shortening and sugar. Add unbeaten egg. Add flavoring. Beat thoroughly. Sift flour, measure, and sift with salt and baking powder. Add alternately with milk to creamed shortening and sugar. Pour into well-oiled loaf pan. Bake in moderate oven at 375 degrees.
