How to Make It

Step 1

Cream butter and shortening in a large mixing bowl; add sugar, beating well. Add egg yolks, and beat well.

Step 2

Combine flour and soda. Add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Mix well. Stir in vanilla, coconut, and 1 cup pecans.

Step 3

Beat egg whites (at room temperature) in a medium mixing bowl until stiff peaks form. Gently fold egg whites into batter. Spoon batter into 3 greased and floured 9-inch round cake pans. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove layers from pans, and let cool completely.

Step 4

Spread frosting between layers and on top and sides of cake. Sprinkle additional pecans over top. Slice and serve.
