Square dance cake
1/2 cup dexo
2 cups sifted cake flour
2 1/12 tsps double-action baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/3 cups sugar
7/8 cup milk (1 cup minus 2 tbsps)
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs, unbeaten
Measure dexo into bowl. Sift flour once, measure; add baking powder, salt, sugar; sift onto dexo. Add vanilla to milk; add 2/3 milk; blend; beat 1 min. Add eggs and remaining milk; beat 2 1/2 mins. Pour 1 3/4 cups batter into greased and floured 8 x 8 x2-inch pan. Bake in 350 F, for 30 mins. When cool cut each layer in half. Arrange alternate colors to form “squares.” Use butter frosting between layers, halves, sides and top. Dot with sweet chocolate.
