Grandma's Yellow Cake
Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. Cream the shortening and sugar, beating well at medium speed of electric mixer for 5 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Beginning and ending with the dry ingredients, add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture alternately with milk and vanilla (and almond extract, if desired). Pour into three prepared 9-inch cake pans.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then invert onto wire racks to finish cooling.

For Sheet Cake: Pour into greased and floured 17x11-1/2x2-1/4-inch pan. Bake at 350°F for 1 hour or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
