Spice Cake

Spice Cake
350*F oven 30-35 minutes (9x12 pan)
makes 70 mini muffins (15-20 minutes)

1 cup sour milk (add 1 T lemon juice to glass measuring cup; fill to line with milk) (do this FIRST - but don't pour in batter til you've added everything else to give the lemon juice time to acidify the milk)
2 cups all -purpose flour
1.5 cups sugar
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon, ground
1/4 t nutmeg, ground
1/4 t cloves, ground
1/4 t ginger, ground
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 t vanilla
3 eggs

combine all items in order listed (except milk - add that last!)

blend together and pour into pan or cupcake liners. . .

this is a staple pantry cake and crowd pleasing.  :)

I usually make a cream cheese frosting or a citrus frosting (lemon or orange) to put on top.
