Dinner tonight: Dinette Cake

You may call it shortcake — pretty much everyone does — but Teresa Stebbins’ mother used to call it dinette cake. I like the name; it has a homey ring to it. Ms. Stebbins writes that this easy recipe can be used for any kind of shortcake; not just strawberries, but raspberries and blackberries, too. She does not know where her mother got this recipe, “but it’s an old one.”

Dinette Cake

1/3 cup shortening

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1¼ cup flour

1½ teaspoon brown sugar

¼ cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease an 8-by-8-inch baking dish.

Mix shortening and sugar. Add the egg and beat to combine. Add remaining ingredients. Place in the prepared baking dish and bake 35-40 minutes.

— Teresa Stebbins
