1/2 c. boiling water

1 c. butter, softened

2 c. sugar

4 eggs, separated

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 1/2 c. sifted cake flour

1 tsp. baking soda

Cream butter, gradually add sugar, beating well at medium speed of an electric mixer. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in white chocolate mixture and vanilla. Combine flour and soda; add to chocolate mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat egg whites (at room temperature) until stiff peaks form; fold into chocolate mixture.

Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks. Spread Coconut-Pecan Frosting between layers on top and sides of cake. Yields one 3 layer cake.
