1 chocolate instant pudding mix
¼ cup flour
2 cups milk
3 egg whites, beaten stiff


3 egg yolks
1 cup sugar
1 cup evaporated milk
½ cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ⅓ cups flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour three 8-inch or two 9-inch round cake pans.  Set aside.

For cake:  Combine cake and pudding mixes, flour, and milk and beat according to cake package directions.  Fold in egg whites.  Pour into the prepared pans and bake 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Remove from pans and cool on wire rack.

For frosting:  Combine egg yolks, sugar, evaporated milk, and butter or margarine in a medium saucepan.  Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened, 12-15 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Add vanilla, coconut, and pecans.  Beat until thick. Spread over cake.
