1/2 cup Crisco

2 cups flour

5 eggs, separated

1 cup buttermilk

2 cups coconut

1/2 cup nuts


Cream together sugar, shortening and butter together. Add egg yolks. Add flour with soda, alternating with buttermilk. Add nuts and coconut. Beat egg whites and fold into batter. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake @ 375 for 35 minutes. Cool

Cream Cheese Frosting

1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese

1 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. milk

2 Tbs. butter

2 cups powdered sugar


Mix cream cheese, vanilla, milk and butter until smooth. Mix in powdered sugar until smooth. Frost cake when cake becomes cool.

while making this I was listening to, Tempted by Squeeze, Above Ground by Norah Jones and Hey Ya by out Cast. I think the combination of music helped the cake turn out better.
