Ingredients

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease and flour one 13x9 inch cake pan.


Combine 1/2 cup of the flour and the brown sugar, cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly, stir in the chopped nuts and set aside.


In a double boiler or microwave melt chocolate chips and set aside to cool.


In a large bowl mix the remaining 2 cups flour, white sugar, baking soda, and salt. Add the shortening, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla. Blend and then beat with an electric mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes.


Combine 1 cup of the batter and the melted cooled chocolate, mix well.


Alternate spooning the light and the dark batters into the prepared 13x9 cake pan. Cut through with a knife to marble. Sprinkle top with the reserved nut mixture.


Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes or until cake tests done. Let cake cool and enjoy!
