DIRECTIONS

  • I make this in either a greased and floured 9 x 12 inch pan or 2 9-inch round pans. For the 9 inch pans I also add wax paper cut to the pan size in the bottom of the pan.
  • I start checking for doneness after 40 minutes for a 9 x 12 pan, and 25 minutes for the 2 9-inch pans. When a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean it's done.
  • Cream margarine and sugar.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, and beat well.
  • Add buttermilk and dry ingredients.
  • Add boiling water and beat until mixed.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45-55 minutes or until done.
  • For Icing- Combine milk, sugar, egg yolks, margarine and vanilla.
  • Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened, about 15 minutes.
  • Add coconut and nuts.
  • Beat until thick enough to spread.
