My Dad’s favorite cake and my second favorite cake of all time. Rich and chocolaty, moist and delicious, this cake will please even those who don’t love chocolate cake. The chocolate isn’t overwhelming, it’s just perfect. Last week, I gave y’all the coconut-pecan frosting recipe and this week, I’m sharing the cake.
This is not the easiest cake to make. It’s not terribly difficult but, you must have all the ingredients prepared and it is a cake that requires your effort and concentration. It’s definitely not just dump, mix and bake.
Trust me though, the results are worth the time.
Sift together: cake flour, baking soda and salt
Melt chocolate shavings in boiling water
Mix Sour Cream and Vanilla
Next, you’ll whip together egg whites and cream of tartar and then add it into the batter.
* I have no pics of this step.. I am only one woman with two hands.
Pour into 3 well greased round cake pans
Bake and once completely cooled; top layer by layer with Coconut-Pecan Frosting

Honest to goodness y’all.. it seems like a lot of work but I swear that it is divine and totally worth it, if you’re up to it
