Million Dollar Cake is a rich and indulgent dessert with the following ingredients:

Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup shredded coconut

Frosting:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.
  4. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, alternating with the buttermilk and mixing until just combined. Stir in the pecans and shredded coconut.
  5. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans and smooth the tops. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
  6. Let the cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove them from the pans and let them cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. To make the frosting, beat the cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Gradually add the powdered sugar, vanilla, shredded coconut, and chopped pecans and beat until well combined.
  8. Place one cake layer on a serving plate and spread a layer of frosting over it. Repeat with the second cake layer and the remaining frosting.
