1 c sour cream
2 c sifted cake flour
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 c butter
1 c sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla

1/4 c sugar
2 tbsp cake flour
1-1/2 c fine grated coconut

1-1/2 c heavy cream
1 tbsp confectioners' sugar

Melt chocolate in water over low heat; blend. Cool thoroughly. Add sour cream. Sift flour, baking powder, soda, and salt.

Cream butter and sugar well. Add eggs, one at time, beating well after each. Bat in vanilla. Add flour and chocolate mixtures alternately, mixing well.
