VERY RICH cake.. if you don’t like rich.. don’t make this one. Best served with  vanilla milk or ice cream to tone down the rich caramel flavor.  Not my favorite but my hubby LOVES this.. I would rather pour the pure caramel over my dessert.


3 cups suger

3/4 cups crisco

5 eggs

3 cups flour

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 1/4 cup milk

2 tsp vanilla

Cream sugar and crisco. Add eggs one at a time. Sift together powdered ingredients three times. Add dry ingredients to the egg mix alternately with milk. Add vanilla. Pour into 4 greased and floured 9 inch pans. (or if in hurry you can do a 9×13)

Bake at 325 degrees until cake tests done.
