  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

  2. Sift flour, cocoa, baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt into a medium bowl.

  3. Using a hand mixer; beat shortening, sugar, and butter with a mixer on high speed until smooth, about 3 minutes. Add egg, and beat until mixture becomes fluffy, about 2 minutes.

  4. Reduce speed to low while slowly adding in flour mixture until all is combined.
