Directions:
CREAM SUGAR AND SHORTENING, ADD BEATEN EGGS. SIFT SODA AND FLOUR TOGETHER AND MIX ALTERNATELY WITH BUTTERMILK UNTIL COMBINED. STIR IN GROUND PEANUTS, RESERVING ABOUT 1/3 CUP TO PUT ON TOP OF FROSTED CAKE. ADD VANILLA TO BATTER LAST. GREASE AND FLOUR 9X13 PAN AND BAKE AT 350 FOR 30-35 MIN. YOU CAN FROST WITH ANY FROSTING YOU LIKE, BUT 7 MINUTE FROSTING IS REALLY GREAT ON THIS CAKE.
7 MINUTE FROSTING
Place sugar, cream of tartar or corn syrup, salt, water, and egg whites in the top of a double boiler. Beat with a handheld electric mixer for 1 minute. Place pan over boiling water, being sure that boiling water does not touch the bottom of the top pan. (If this happens, it could cause your frosting to become grainy). Beat constantly on high speed with electric mixer for 7 minutes. Beat in vanilla.
