In medium bowl, beat flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking pwder, salt, shortening, milk, vanilla & 4 egg yolks with electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on high speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. (Batter will be stiff). Spread evenly into pans.

In small bowl, beat 4 egg whites with electric mixer on medium speed until foamy. Beat in 1 cup sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, on high speed until stiff peaks form. Spread half of meringue over batter in each pan.

Bake 30-35 minutes or util meringue looks dry & set. Cool 10 minutes. Loosen meringues fro edges of pans with point of a knife if necessary. Carefully remove from pans and peel off paper. Cool completely with meringue sides up on cooling racks, about 1 hour.

Spread 1.25 cups of pudding over meringue on 1 cake layer. Place other cake layer, meringue side up, on first layer. Top with remaining pudding. Serve within 30 minutes. Store in refrigerator.
