1 cup hot (prepared) coffee

For cupcakes, fill 2/3 full and bake at 350 degrees for 20 min. Check with toothpick, if dry when inserted in middle, they're done, If not, bake a few minutes longer.

For cake, bake in 13 by 9" pan or 2 round pans for layer cake at 350 degrees for 35-40 min.


4 tbsp. flour and 1 cup milk. Cook and stir until thick and creamy. Set aside and cool completely. Mix together with blender 1/2 cup crisco shortening and 1/2 cup margarine, softened. Add 1 cup sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla and mix well. Mix together cool flour mixture with sugar mixture and beat on high- the longer, the creamier and fluffier!
