Taken from my Favorites folder!

I most always make this using blueberries and cranberries, this is one of my favorite cakes, in place of the cinnamon/sugar topping a white glaze can be drizzled on top

This cake stays moist for days but don’t worry it won’t last that long, yes it is that good!

This is a must have in your pantry,  it’s cheaper to use and works even better than any cooking spray with  no chemical fumes and will not leave burnt on black residue on the edges of your pans like cooking spray and it will and will keep forever in your cupboard

For baking recipes using chocolate you may use 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder in place of white flour or 1/4 cup each cocoa powder and flour

This may be increased or decreased sucessfully just make certain that all the three ingredients are the same amounts or the mixture will not work as well

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup corn oil OR 1/2 cup canola oil OR 1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup vegetable shortening, room temperature (Crisco shortening is good)

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

INSTRUCTIONS:————————————————

Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl.

Using an electric mixer beat until mixture has increased in volume slightly and resembles marshmallow cream.

Place in a container with a lid and store on the counter or in a cupboard (in hot weather it may be refrigerated).

The mixture tends to separate slightly upon sitting in your cupboard or refrigerator so mix before using, then brush pans using a pastry brush or a clean paper towel.
