If I knew you were coming I would have baked a cake.


Yes there it is, the famous shot cake. There are certain things that just make you feel good. This was my Aunt Marie's recipe. Fortunately my sister had a copy. When I was mixing the batter looked and it looked like it should have I was happy. When I took it out of the oven and it looked just like my aunt's cake I was happy. And oh it smells so good. I am afraid to taste it because I am not sure I will be able to handle that much joy...
Yes it was as good as I remember.
: )

Here is the recipe-
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup spry
2 tsp vanilla
Beat the above ingredients together for 15 minutes.

3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch salt

Fold 1 cup milk into egg mixture. Add flour to egg mixture and blend well on low speed. Add 1/2 cup chocolate shots. Mix. Pour into a well greased 10" tube pan. Bake 1 hour 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool inverted on rack.

This cake sounds good. I'm thinking about making it. I have a question. What is Spry?

I just realized how old this recipe is. My mom made this all the time when I was growing up and I am 51 so... Spry is now called - Crisco-All-Vegetable Shortening, the stuff in the can. I glad I didn't put in Fluffo as an ingredient. Ah memories!
