How to make it

  • Cake:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease and flour two 9" round cake pans. Set aside.
  • Combine chocolate and butter in top of a double boiler. Bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook until chocolate melts.
  • Add pecans and stir well. Remove from heat.
  • Combine eggs and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat at high speed until thickened and pale.
  • Stir in chocolate mixture.
  • Combine flour,baking powder,and salt. Add to chocolate mixture alternatively with milk, beginning and ending with flour.
  • Stir in vanilla. Pour batter into prepared pans.
  • Bake for 45-48 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool layers in pans for 5 minutes then turn out onto wire racks.
  • Cool completely.
  • Filling:
  • Combine chocolate and butter in top of a double boiler. Bring water to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and cook until chocolate melts.
  • Gradually add powdered sugar,altenatively with milk,beginning and ending with sugar.
  • Stir until smooth. Cover and chill for 30 minutes or until mixture reaches spreading consistency.
  • Spread filling between layers.
  • Frosting:
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  • Beat at high speed until stiff peaks form.
  • Chill 30 minutes.
  • Frost sides and top of layers.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
  • Note:
  • If,like me,you do not have a double boiler,simple melt chocolate and butter in a heavy bottomed saucepan over low heat. Stir constantly and watch closely. Chocolate burns easily.
