Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour 3 9" pans, or you may use 8" pans for a taller cake, if you prefer.
2
Combine first 5 ingredients and mix at medium speed for approximately 2 minutes.
3
Stir in coconut and pecans. Pour into prepared pans. If using 9" pans, batter will be spread fairly thin. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until cakes test done. Cool in pans on wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
4
For frosting, combine cream cheese and butter and mix until well blended.
5
Gradually add confectioners sugar as you mix. Mix until fluffy frosting consistency. Add vanilla and blend well.
6
Frost between layers, sides, and top of cake. Garnish with toasted pecan halves, if desired.
