I used this white cake to make strawberry shortcake. It was delicious!
1 1/3 c white flour (I used cake flour)
¾ c sugar
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
½ c milk
¼ c shortening
½ tsp vanilla
2 egg whites
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl except the egg whites. Beat egg whites on low for 30 seconds, scraping bowl. Beat on high for 2 minutes until smooth. Add egg whites and beat on high for 2 additional minutes, scraping the bowl occasionally. Pour into greased and floured 9x13 pan. Bake at 350° for 40-45 min; 15 cupcakes 20-25 min. Cake is done when toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool completely.
*For yellow cake include the yolks.
*For half recipe flour = ½ c + 2 Tbsp + 2 tsp.
