Blitz Torte

1/2 c. soft shortening, like Crisco 1 1/2 c. confectioner's sugar, sifted (divided) 4 eggs, separated 1 c. flour 1 tsp. baking powder 1/4 tsp. salt 3 Tbsp. milk 1/2 c. granulated sugar 1/2 c. shaved blanched almonds 2 Tbsp. sugar 1 batch instant vanilla pudding Whipped cream
An old-school dessert recipe. Beat together shortening and 3/4 c. confectioner's sugar. (Confectioner's sugar is also known as powdered sugar, icing sugar, or 10X.) Separate eggs. Add yolks to creamed shortening and sugar mixture. Into a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add dry ingredients to creamed shortening mixture. Then add 3 Tbsp. milk. Grease and flour two round 8-inch cake pans. Pour batter into pans. Beat egg whites until frothy. Gradually add 1/2 c. granulated sugar and 1/2 c. confectioner's sugar. Spread half of this meringue layer over batter in each pan. Combine blanched almonds with 2 Tbsp. sugar. Sprinkle evenly over meringue layers. Bake at 325F for 35 to 40 minutes. (Remember, a meringue behaves itself much better on a dry day. Humidity = meringue's doom!) While cake layers are baking, make instant pudding according to package directions. Place in refrigerator to firm. Allow cake to cool thoroughly and completely. Place a layer on a serving plate, meringue side up. Add a layer of pudding, then place the other layer on top. Serve with whipped cream alongside.
