In honor of Rose Armstrong who passed away last week, here is her cake recipe from my old school recipe book.  This book was made by the Marshall Township PTA (Indiana) in 1955.

2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup cake flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup hot milk
1 tbsp. melted veg. shortening
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. lemon extract

Beat eggs, add sugar, beat thoroughly, sift flour, baking powder and stir into egg mixture.  Add milk, shortening, salt and extract.  Mix quickly, put into 8 inch square ungreased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
