    coconut pecan frosting and filling


    1. 1
      Grease two 9-inch layer cake pans and line bottoms with waxed paper.
    2. 2
      Sift together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
    3. 3
      Cream butter; add flour mixture, 3/4 cup buttermilk, and vanilla. Stir until dry ingredients are moistened; beat at medium speed of electric mixer for 2 minutes, scraping bowl from time to time.
    4. 4
      Add melted chocolate, eggs, and remaining 1/4 cup buttermilk. Beat 1 minute longer.
    5. 5
      Pour batter into prepared cake pans. Bake in a preheated 350° oven for about 35 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
    6. 6
      Cool in pans on rack for 15 minutes. Remove and cool completely on racks.
    7. 7
      In a saucepan over medium heat, combine milk, sugars, butter, and vanilla. Bring to a full boil, stirring constantly.
    8. 8
      Remove from heat (mixture might appear a bit curdled).
    9. 9
      Quickly stir a small amount of the hot liquid into the beaten egg yolks; return egg yolk mixture to the hot mixture in saucepan and blend well. Return to a boil, stirring constantly.
    10. 10
      Remove from heat and stir in coconut and pecans. Cool to spreading consistency, beating occasionally.
    11. 11
      Here then i added me own little flair, it's perfect just the way it is, but this adds a little something extra. I chopped up some more pecans somewhat small and pressed them into the sides all the way around. Then i just topped it with some chocolate shavings. Enjoy.
