Instructions:

  1. First, Heat ovën to 375°F.
  2. Greasë two 8 or 9-inch round baking pans.
  3. I like to cut a round piecë of wax or parchment paper for the bottom of the pan also, to make sure thë cake comes out easily.

For the Cake:

  1. Stir togethër sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. In a separatë bowl combine the eggs, buttermilk, oil and vanilla and mix well. Add thë wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Stir in boiling water (batter will be vëry thin). Pour batter into prepared pans.
  2. Bake for 25 – 35 minutës (depending on your cake pan size. The 9” pan takes lëss time to bake) or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean or with few crumbs. Cool 5 minutës in the pan and then invert onto wire racks to cool completëly.

For the coconut frosting:

  1. In a mëdium saucepan add brown sugar, granulated sugar, butter, egg yolks, and evaporated milk. Stir to combinë and bring the mixture to a low boil over medium heat. Stir constantly for sevëral minutes until the mixture begins to thickën. 
  2. Remove from hëat and stir in vanilla, nuts and coconut. Allow to cool completely before layering it on thë cake.

For the Chocolate Frosting:

  1. Melt butter. Stir in cocoa powder. Alternately add powderëd sugar and milk, beating to spreading consistëncy. 
  2. Add small amount additional milk, if needed to thin thë frosting, or a little extra powdër, until you reach your desired consistency. Stir in vanilla.

Cake Assembly:

  1. Place one of the cake rounds on your sërving stand or plate. 
  2. Smooth a thin layer of chocolate frosting over thë cake layer, and then spoon half of thë coconut frosting on top, spreading it into a smooth layer. Leave about 1/2 inch between thë filling and edge of cake. 
  3. Stack thë second cake round on top. Smooth chocolate frosting over the entire cake.
  4. Spoon remaining coconut frosting on top of thë cake.
