Does anyone have a recommended recipe for Vanilla Cake that uses shortening instead of butter or oil. I like the moisture of Vanilla Cakes that use oil but I like the texture of cakes that use butter and the creaming method. I'd like to see the results of shortening. The only recipes I've found so far are by Crisco, which I will try today. Also, has anyone taken a cake recipe that uses butter and replaced it with shortening? Thanks for the help!
