How to Make Mississippi's Best Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix all the cake ingredients together except for the coconut pecan icing. Mix well.
  2. Gradually mix the coconut pecan icing into the cake batter. Mix well.
  3. Pour into 2 well greased 9 inch round cake pans or a 9 x 13 cake pan.
  4. Cook in a 350 degree oven until cake is golden and done ( about 35-40 mins ). Let partially cool before moving to a wire rack to continue cooling. ( Be careful when transferring to a wire rack as these cakes tend to stick to the middle of your pan. ) Let cool completely. If using a 9 x 13 pan, just let cool in the pan.
  5. Set the chopped pecans aside for sprinkling on the cake. Mix all the other icing ingredients together. Mix well. Spread icing on cake. For 9 inch round cake, ice the first layer then sprinkle with chopped pecans. Next, stack the second layer, ice top and sides, and sprinkle with chopped pecans. For the 9 x 13 cake, you can keep the cake in the pan and ice the top only ( you may not need all the quantity of icing ) then sprinkle with chopped pecans.
