Grease a 9x13x2-inch baking pan. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl beat shortening for 30 seconds or until softened. Add 1 c sugar and the vanilla; beat until combined. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each.
In a large mixing bowl beat egg whites on medium to high speed until soft peaks form (tips curl).
