1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup buttermilk
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup flaked coconut

White Chocolate Frosting
4-ounces chopped white chocolate
2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Flaked coconut for garnish (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour the bottoms of 2 (9-inch) round cake pans. Set aside.

In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the chocolate and hot water and cook over medium heat until chocolate is smooth, stirring constantly. Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, butter and milk. With electric mixer, blend on low speed to moisten, then on medium speed, scraping bowl as needed. Add eggs, chocolate mixture and vanilla. Blend on medium speed for 1 minute. Stir in the pecans and coconut.

Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool on racks for about 10 minutes. Loosen sides with a knife and remove cake from pans, returning to racks to completely cool.

To make the white chocolate frosting, combine the chocolate and flour in a medium saucepan. Blend in the milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick. Remove from heat and cool.

In a large bowl, cream the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Gradually add the cooled chocolate mixture, beating after each addition. Beat on high speed until frosting is a whipped cream consistency. Use mixture as filling and frosting for cooled cake. Sprinkle top and sides of cake with flaked coconut, if desired.
