Grandma’s 1936 Cake

This was found in my grandma’s little “Good Luck Margarine” Book.  It is actually called a Merrette Yellow Cake but I like what my grandma named it. the 1936 Cake.  I love this little book as it has grandmas notes all over it!  Here it is as written in the book, substitute name brands as needed!

  1 cup Jelke Good Luck Margarine2 cups granulated sugar4 eggs3 cups pastry flour3 teaspoons baking powder¼ teaspoon salt½ cup Jelke Good Luck or other Evaporated Milk½ cup water2 teaspoons flavoring           Cream Jelke Good Luck Margarine and sugar, add beaten egg yolks.  Sift flour once, measure, mix all dry ingredients together and sift three times.  Add dry ingredients alternately with the liquids to the margarine and sugar mixture.  Fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites.  Pour into a well-greased cake pan or layer tins and bake in a hot oven (375) until done-approximately 20 to 25 minutes.  Cool and frost.
