    Coconut-Pecan Topping


    1. 1
      Grease and lightly flour three 9x1-1/2-inch round cake pans; set aside.
    2. 2
      In a mixing bowl, mix flour, soda, and salt.
    3. 3
      In saucepan, heat, stir chocolate and water until chocolate melts. Remove from heat; cool.
    4. 4
      In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer for 30 seconds. Beat in the sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each. Beat in chocolate and vanilla.
    5. 5
      Alternately add the flour mixture and the buttermilk, beating on low speed after each addition. Wash the beaters thoroughly.
    6. 6
      In medium bowl with cleaned beaters, beat egg whites on high until stiff peaks form. Fold whites into batter. Divide the batter among the prepared cake pans.
