Mother always had some favorite recipes for home made cakes.

This one is simple and the frosting is different and very good.

1 1/3 cup sugar
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/3 tsp soda

In large bowl mix:
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla

Add dry ingredients and mix well. Bake in oblong pan 35 to 40 minutes
