Old Time Lightning Cake

Mom's Black Book
URL: http://recipes.nalbone.us

Servings: 24

SOme of the recipes in Mom's book only listed ingredients or had minimal directions. In those cases I looked for similar recipes on the internet to get some instructions. Most of the recipes I found on line for Lightning Cake use hot milk. This looks like a different version or may be a
misnomer.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream

Directions

  1. Mix and sift flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar.
  2. Break eggs into a 2 cups measure and add sour cream to fill remaining space (approximately 1 cup of sour
    cream). Pour into mixer bowl and beat thoroughly with egg beater.
  3. Stir in flour mixture gradually.
  4. Beat vigorously until smooth and creamy.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F in a greased pan until it tests done.
