This wonderful cake is a chocolate version of the classic Italian Cream Cake.

Yield: Makes 10 to 12 servings


* 5 large eggs, separated
* 1/2 cup butter, softened
* 1/2 cup shortening
* 2 cups sugar
* 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 cup buttermilk
* 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
* 2/3 cup finely chopped pecans
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* Chocolate-Cream Cheese Frosting
* Garnish: pecan halves


* Beat egg whites at high speed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form; set aside.
* Beat butter and shortening until creamy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add egg yolks, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition.
* Combine flour, cocoa, and baking soda; add to butter mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed until blended after each addition. Stir in coconut, chopped pecans, and vanilla. Fold in egg whites. Pour batter into 3 greased and floured 8-inch round cakepans.
