Ingredients:
  • 1â�„2 lb. of butter
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 small can of evaporated milk, do not add water
  • 1 tsp. lemon or vanilla, or both
  • Frosting
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 11â�„2 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 TBS milk or more for creamy texture
  • Lemon or almond flavoring, to taste, about 1 tsp.
Mix butter, flour, sugar, evaporated milk and flavorings, adding eggs last. Pour into a greased and floured heart-shaped pan. Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees. Frost when completely cooled. Note: Don’t put in a refrigerator to cool, because the inside may still be warm, though the outside is cooled.
Frosting
