Recipe Information

# of Servings: 2 – 9″ round layers
Recipe Created By: Linda Marienhoff Coss


2 cups sugar
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp white distilled vinegar
2 cups water


Preheat oven to 350 °F.

Using 100% vegetable shortening, grease and then flour two 9-inch round cake pans.

Sift dry ingredients together into large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients; beat with electric mixer at medium speed until smooth.

Pour batter into prepared cake pans. Bake in preheated 350 °F oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pans 10 minutes before turning out onto wire racks to cool completely. Frost.


I like this best with Chocolate Frosting.
