Why I Love This Recipe

I had this cake in my recipe box for years before I tried it - big mistake. This cake is wonderful if you like chocolate and coconut!

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
Mix and cook until thick, about 30 minutes:
3 cups angel flake coconut
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/4 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup cocoa
4 cups confectionery sugar
1 stick butter, room temperature
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla


Sift dry ingredients together. Add shortening, 3/4 cup milk, and vanilla. Mix until flour is damp. Add eggs and remaining milk and beat well.

Bake at 350 degrees in three 9-inch pans for 30 minutes. Cool. Split layers.

While baking the cake, make the filling

Mix well.

Spread the tops of layers 1, 3 and 5 with the coconut filling. Frost the tops of layers 2, 4, and 6 and the sides of the cake with the frosting.
