Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease 1 10 inch tube pan and dust with flour. Cream shortening and margarine together. Add sugar and salt gradually. Add eggs one at a time. Beat well after each addition, add flavor to milk and then add alternately with flour to above mixture. Pour into prepared pan. Bake about 1 1/2 hours or until done. This cake is fine textured.
