To Prepare Cake
Grease and line two 8-inch layer cake pans. Set oven at 350 degrees. Melt chocolate and butter over steam in top of double boiler. When cool, add sugar, vanilla and eggs beaten together. (Do not use mixer.) Do not reheat after combining these. Dredge pecans in flour and add last. Pour into prepared cake pans. Put a pan of water in oven while baking. Bake about 30 to 40 minutes. Let cake get cold before removing from pan.
