Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup salted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

Instructions

  1. Cream together the sugar, butter and shortening until smooth then beat in vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, until fluffy.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, and salt). Add this flour mixture and the evaporated milk to the original mixture alternately. Beat for 2 minutes on medium speed, then fold in the sour cream.
  3. Spread onto a parchment lined half sheet pan. Bake at 325°F until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean (25-35 minutes – but check at 25 minutes!).
