"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Ingredients:  
Shortning and flour for pans
1 1/4 C cake flour
1 tsp salt
1 T baking powder
1 T powdered milk
1/2 C water
2/3 C liquid milk (2 percent or whole)
3/4 C sugar
3 large eggs

Directions:
Directions:
( 3 thin 9 inch layers or tow thicker 9 inch layers)
Preheat oven to 350 .
Prepare cake pans by lightly greasing with shortening, then dusting them with flour.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside. In a small bowl or measuring cup, stir the powdered milk into the water and mix until disolved. Combine the liquid milk with the powdered milk/water mixture and set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the shortening and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add about half the flour mixture, beating until just incorporated and then half the milk mixture and again beating until just incorporated. Repeat this step, adding the remaining flour with the remaining liquid and beat until just smooth (about 1 minute). Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowls once or twice during the mixing. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pans and bake in preheated oven for about 20 - 30 minutes. The cooking time will vary depending on how many cake pans you use and how full they are. The cake is done when it springs back when lightly pressed near the center with your finger. Allow the cake to cool for a few minutes in the pan and then turn out onto cooling racks to col completely.
