White Cake Supreme


  • 3/4 cup shortening I use high-ratio, because it combines better than regular shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 6 stiff-beaten egg whites


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Grease and flour two six-inch cake pans, and line six muffin cups with cupcake liners.
  • Cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add vanilla and almond extract, and mix well.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to creamed mixture alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients beating well after each addition.
  • Beat 2 minutes with electric mixer.
  • Fold in egg whites.
  • Pour batter into pans and muffin tin. Bake muffins approximately 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Bake cakes an additional 10 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
