One Egg Cake

June 3, 2014

Celebrate Everything and Anything!


This is the must have quick fix cake for me.  Be it simply plain with some fruit and cream or decorated for a celebration.  Easy enough to make after a few times with no recipe and fast enough for unexpected guests.


One Egg Cake


  • 1 1/2 C. Flour
  • 2 1/2 t. Baking Powder
  • 1/4 t. Salt
  • 1/3 C. Shortening
  • 2/3 C. Sugar
  • 1 Lg. Egg (beaten)
  • 3/4 t. Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 C. Whole Milk


  1. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt (or sift)
  2. Cream together the shortening and sugar
  3. Add the beaten egg; beat thoroughly and add the vanilla
  4. Add dry ingredients alternately with the milk; stir only enough after each addition to blend thoroughly
  5. Pour into 8″ greased pan
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes
  7. Remove from oven and place on wire rack to cool for 10 minutes
  8. Place on serving plate and let cool thoroughly before decorating





You can also turn this into a fabulous Upside Down Cake with little effort.
