Cream shortening. Gradually add sugar. Beat until fluffy. Add egg yolks and beat again. Sift flour; measure and add salt, soda, baking powder and spices. Sift again. Add dry ingredients alternately with milk and flavoring. Beat thoroughly after each addition. Gently fold in stiffly beaten whites. Pour into a greased, flat pan, 8x12 inches.
