Directions:
Grease and line with paper a loaf pan (9x5x3"). Blend flour and rest of dry ingredients in bowl. Add shortening, vanilla, egg yolks and 1/2 c. of milk. (When using reg flour, add milk all at once.) Beat 2 minutes with a mixer on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl constantly. Add rest of milk. Beat 2 more min., scraping bowl frequently. Spoon batter into pan. Bake in 350 oven for 60-70 minutes. Cool and finish with Orange Glaze.

To fix orange glaze mix ingredients. Let stand on top of oven while baking cake, stirring occasionally. When cake is baked, remove from pan and punch holes on top surface with a fork. Pour the warm glaze, a little at a time, over the top

Personal Notes:
I made this cake many times. It was a good way to use up egg yolks that I had left over from wedding cakes. Plus, it's GOOD!
