Directions

Cake directions Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, set aside. Line the bottom of 3 9" cake pans with wax paper, set aside. Microwave 1/2 cup of water with chocolate for about 2 minutes. Remove and stir well, set aside to cool. On a sheet of wax paper sift the flour, salt and baking soda, set aside. In a mixing bowl beat together, butter and sugar until creamy. Add the cooled off chocolate while mixer is running. Add flour mixture a little at a time. Incorporate the buttermilk a bit at a time along with the vanilla. Fold in the egg whites with a spoon (not the mixer) gently. Pour batter into pans equally. Bake at pre-heated oven set at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Check the center of the cakes with a wooden toothpick. If it comes out clean the cakes are done. Remove from oven with a spatula or knife, trace around the side of the cake while still in the pans. Place cakes on a wire cooling rack for about 15 minutes. Remove wax paper from the bottom of the cakes and let them finish cooling. Frosting directions Mix milk, sugar, margarine, egg yolks and vanilla in a large sauce pan. Cook and stir on medium heat about 12 minutes or until thickened and golden brown. Remove from heat stir in coconut and pecans beat until cool and in a spreading consistency.
