  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl.

  • Beat sugar and shortening together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition. Add flour mixture alternately with milk, beating just to combine. Stir in vanilla and pour cake batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40 to 45 minutes. Cool cake completely and top with your favorite frosting.
