Kentie's Delightful Nutmeg Cake

Preheat oven to 350º

2 1/4 c cake flour
3/4    c light brown sugar
1/2    c white sugar
1/4    t salt
2 1/2 t baking powder
1       t ground nutmeg
3/4    c Crisco
3/4    c milk
1       t lemon extract
3         eggs


    1    Sift together in a bowl the dry ingredients, including the nutmeg.
    2    Add the Crisco, most of the milk, flavoring and 1 egg.  Beat with an electric mixer 2 minutes or 200 strokes by hand.
    3    Add remaining eggs and milk.  Beat with an electric mixer 2 minutes or 200 strokes by hand.
    4    Divide into (3) 8-inch round cake pans or (2) 9-inch round cake pans and bake at 350º for 30-35 minutes.  Or make as cupcakes and bake for 20-25 minutes.  This recipe makes about 20 cupcakes, you can probably stretch it out to make a full 2 dozen.

Note:  Preparing your pans.  Spray them with PAM baking spray, or grease them with Crisco and line with wax paper, or mix 2 t of flour into 2 T of Crisco and rub the pans with this mixture, or grease and flour the old-fashioned way.

Also, use shiny silver pans, or disposable aluminum pans.  If you are using dark pans, reduce the oven temperature by 25º
