  • (or 2 larger cake pans).

  • Melt chocolate in boiling water. Stir and cool.
  • Cream butter and sugar. Add yolks, one at a time, beating well after each yolk.
  • Blend in vanilla and chocolate.
  • Mix flour with soda and salt. Add alternately with buttermilk to chocolate
  • mixture, beating after each addition until smooth.
  • Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold beaten egg whites into
  • the chocolate batter mixture.
  • Divide batter between prepared pans.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, but check on cakes earlier, especially if using
  • 3 pans.Cool in pans for 5 minutes before turning out on racks to cool. Frost
  • with Coconut Pecan Frosting (recipe below).
  • Frosting directions:
  • Combine milk, sugar, yolks, butter and vanilla in saucepan.
  • Cook and stir over medium heat until it thickens, about 12 minutes.
  • Stir in coconut and nuts. (An electric mixer works for this part.) Cool until
  • it’s thick enough to spread, beating occasionally.
  • Makes about 3 ~ cups, more than enough to fill and frost a 9-inch 3-layer cake.
  • It will run off, so make sure it’s cool.
