Sunbeam Victory Cake

 

With the present sugar rationing in mind. Mrs. E. L. Sisk, Eagledale, found and tried a sugarless cake.  Because she found it very satisfactory, she called The Review and suggested that we pass it on to you.  You’ll need either an electric mixer or a strong right arm.

 

Cream rapidly for one minute:

            ½ cup shortening and

            2 teas. Grated orange rind

 

Beat in gradually:

            1 cup white corn syrup

 

Sift together:

            2 ¼ cups flour

            2 ¾ teas. baking powder

            ¼ teas. salt

 

Add ¼ of flour to first mixture beating rapidly

Add: 2 unbeaten eggs, one at a time, beating one minute after each.

 

Fold in remaining flour alternately with ½ cup milk, 1 ½ teas. vanilla.  Bake in two 8 inch layer pans in a moderate 350 degree over for 30 minutes.
