Preheat oven to 350 °F.
Using 100% vegetable shortening, grease and then flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
Sift dry ingredients together into large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients; beat with electric mixer at medium speed until smooth.
Pour batter into prepared cake pans. Bake in preheated 350 °F oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pans 10 minutes before turning out onto wire racks to cool completely. Frost.
