1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup shortening
1/4 cup baking cocoa, unsweetened
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 t baking soda
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 t vanilla extract

1/2 cup margarine, room temperature
1/4 cup baking cocoa, unsweetened
6 T milk
1 lb (1 box) confectioners sugar**
(**about 3 3/4 cups unsifted)
1 t vanilla extract
2 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350F.
Grease and flour a 13x9x2 inch baking pan. Sift flour, sugar,
and salt into a large bowl; set aside. In a small saucepan,
combine 1/2 cup margarine, shortening, 1/4 cup cocoa, and 1
cup water; bring to a boil. Pour mixture over the flour
mixture. Stir in buttermilk, baking soda, eggs, and vanilla.

in a medium saucepan. Bring mixture just to a boil; remove

a wooden spoon until smooth. Stir in coconut and pecans.
Spread over hot cake right out of the oven. Cool frosted
