Old Fashioned Spice Cake

Believe it or not, this recipe is from my High School Home Economics class. I think I have made this recipe almost every year since then and may still have my original Recipe Book we made in class packed away somewhere.

Measure into a mixing bowl:

2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup shortening

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. ground cloves

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 tsp. Allspice

1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup dark molasses

Stir in:

2 tsp. baking powder

2 eggs

1/3 cup milk

Mix until the batter is smooth and pour into a greased 8" x 8" square or round cake pan.

Bake @375F for 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
