  1. Cream together shortening and milk for about 3 minutes, (it will look like small curd cottage cheese.) Add in vanilla.
  2. in a separate bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add flour, one third at a time to the milk mixture, blending well after each addition.
  3. Lastly, add in egg whites, beating just until all combined.
  4. Pour batter into a greased and floured (do not use a spray) 10 inch cast iron skillet.
  5. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes, using a toothpick inserted in the center to test for doneness.
  6. Let cool on wire rack for at least 45 minutes before serving, lightly dust with powdered sugar if desired.
