Cup Cakes

This isn’t a very fancy recipe as far as ingredients or description goes.   I think this recipe came from the cupcake papers package.  I made them quite often and memorized the recipe.  The recipe doesn’t indicate how many it made, but I’m thinking about a dozen.  I usually frosted them with a powdered sugar and cream icing, since we had fresh milk and cream all the time.  They weren’t very fancy and would not have won any cupcake wars, I’m sure.  But a nice little treat to put in our lunch boxes.

Cup Cakes

1/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 egg well-beaten
2 cups flour
1/4 teasp. salt
1 teasp. vanilla
3 teasp. baking powder

Sift dry ingredients together; add melted shortening to milk, egg and flavoring.  Mix together.  Combine well.  Hot oven, 20 minutes from 375 to 400 degrees F.
