                         -----THE FILLING-----
      1/2  cup           Butter or margarine
      3/4  cup           Evaporated milk
      1/2  cup           Crisco
    1      cup           Sugar
    1      tablespoon    Vanilla
                         -----THE CAKE-----
    3      large         Eggs
    1 1/2  teaspoons     Vanilla
    1      cup           Milk -- whole
      1/2  cup           Butter
    1 1/2  cups          Sugar
    1      teaspoon      Salt
    3 1/2  teaspoons     Baking powder
    2      cups          All purpose flour
 
 The Filling. Cream the butter 5 minutes, medium speed. Add Crisco a little
 at a time. Cream another 3 or 4 minutes. Add the sugar  a little at a time
 while continuing to beat. Then add the milk, mixed  first with the vanilla,
 beating and scraping the sides and bottom of the  bowl frequently. The
 longer you beat this the better it becomes. The Cake.  Preheat oven to
 350~. Grease two 8 square cake pans or baking dishes, or  use a 13x9x2
 pan. Beat 1 minute after each addition. Pour batter into  prepared pans.
 Bake at 350~ for 30-35 minutes (40-45 minutes for an oblong  pan) or until
 you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean. Cool the  cake in pan on
 a rack. It’s best to use the cake for Twinkles when it is  slightly frozen
 - about 30 minutes in the freezer. Then cut them into  1-1/2x3-1/2 bars.
 Put bottom side of each bar up on waxed paper. Spread  half of the bars
 with the filling and put together with an unfrosted bar,  sandwich style.
 Refrigerates up to 2 weeks, freezes up to 1 year.
