This cake is EXCELLENT!! The only substitution I make is real butter for the shortening, softened, and add 4tsp total of baking powder. Make sure you mix all dry ingredients together first before adding wet. I did not get a cornmeal consistency at all. Also, be sure to beat the egg white until stiff and it is important to mix in some first then gently fold in the rest, this is what makes the cake light and fluffy. It is my sons birthday today and this cake is always THE birthday cake, with a nice buttercream frosting, I get a lot of requests for this cake. Sometimes I just do a 9x13, sometimes cupcakes, and sometimes the layers. It is the BEST cake!
