I'm not sure what I did wrong, but this did not come out. I sifted together the dry ingredients and boiled 2 cups of milk. I melted the shortening in the milk, added it to the dry ingredients, beat in the eggs and added vanilla. The result resembled cookie dough more than cake batter. I wonder if I should have cooled the milk/shortening mixture before adding it. I baked my mess like a cake and the result was lumpy and fell apart. It did taste good though. I decided to try again and mixed the dry ingredients (I used Splenda instead of sugar this time) and then treated it like a boxed mix. I added 1 1/3c water and 1/3c oil. Then I beat in 3 eggs and some vanilla. It baked beautifully in about 30 minutes and was delicious. Tasted very similar to a boxed mix.
