I creamed the shortening and sugar very thoroughly, sifted the dry ingredients before adding them (just as the recipe instructed), and baked the cake for only 35 minutes. However, we still found this cake to be a bit dry and lacking in taste. I made chocolate frosting using Hershey's Cocoa, which helped to redeem the cake. Perhaps using butter instead of shortening would help, but I don't know that I'll give it another try. I'll probably just go back to the ease of box mixes.
