   Preparation Time: 0:20
   Melt 1 tablespoon shortening and unsweetened chocolate in a
   small saucepan, stirring until smooth. Set aside. Cream
   butter and shortening; gradually add sugar to creamed
   mixture, beating well at medium speed of an electric mixer.
    Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.
   Dissolve soda in buttermilk.  Combine flour and salt; add
   to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning
   and ending with flour mixture.  Mix just until blended
   after each addition.  Stir in flavorings. Remove 2 cups of
   batter, and add chocolate mixture, stirring until blended.
   Spoon one-third of remaining plain batter into a greased
   and floured 10-inch tube pan; top with half of chocolate
   batter. Repeat layers, ending with plain batter. Gently
   swirl batter with a knife to create a marble effect. Bake
   at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted
   in center comes out clean.  Cool in pan 10 to 15 minutes;
   remove from pan, and let cool completely on a wire rack.
   Yield: one 10-inch cake.
