– 1 package sweet baking chocolate – 4 eggs, separated – 2,1/2 cups all purpose flour – 1/2 tsp salt – 1 cup evaporated milk – 3 egg yolks – 1 cup chopped pecans


– Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease, flour, and line the bottoms of 3 8-inch cake pans with parchment paper. – Melt chunks of chocolate in boiling water, then let it cool. – In a large bowl, beat softened margarine and sugar until light and fluffy.
