Marble Cake Recipe

½ cup shortening

1 cup sugar

2 large eggs

2 cups sifted all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

2/3 cup milk

1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon

¾ teaspoon cloves

¾ teaspoon nutmeg

¼ cup molasses

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 ¼ ” x 5 ¼ ” x 2 ½ ” loaf pan. Cream together the shortening and the sugar; add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt; add alternately with the milk to the creamed mixture. Divide the batter into two parts. To one part add the cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and molasses. Place by spoonfuls, alternating light and dark batters, into the prepared loaf pan. Bake about 1 ½ hours. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan and then remove to a cooling rack. If desired, top with frosting.
