Ingredients

Cake
¾ cup water
6 each chocolate
german sweet chocolate, 1.5 ounces each square
*
1 ½ cups butter
softened
3 cups sugar
6 large egg yolks
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
1 ½ cups buttermilk
3 ¾ cups cake flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
6 large egg whites
Frosting
1 ½ cups sugar
1.5 cup sugar
1 ½ cups evaporated milk
¾ cup butter
5 large egg yolks
5 egg yolks; beaten
2 cups coconut, shredded (desiccated)
*
1 ½ cups pecans
chopped
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃) F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour 3 to 9 inch round pans.

Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a small saucepan, heat water and 4 ounces chocolate until melted.

Remove from heat and allow to cool.

In a large bowl, cream 1 cup butter and 2 cups sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in 4 egg yolks one at a time. Blend in the melted chocolate mixture and vanilla.

Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk, mixing just until incorporated.

In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.

Fold ⅓ of the whites into the batter, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain.

Pour into 3 to 9 inch pans Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes (Check at 20 min.), or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto wire rack.

Put the cake pans in the refrigerator to cool, this makes them easier to frost without crumbs.

To make the Filling:

Lightly toast coconut on baking sheet (325 about 5 min.).

In a saucepan combine 1 cup sugar, evaporated milk, ½ cup butter, and 3 egg yolks.

Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Remove from heat.

Stir in coconut, pecans and vanilla.

Add cornstarch if needing more thickening and a touch of salt.

Cool until thick enough to spread.

Spread filling between layers and on top of cake.

In a small saucepan, melt shortening and 1 ounce of chocolate.

Stir until smooth and drizzle down the sides of the cake.
