1 cup butter or margarine, room temperature
2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
4 cups unsweetened flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 13" x 9" baking pan using Pan Release.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla. Combine the flour, cream of tartar and cocoa. Stir flour mixture into the egg mixture until well blended. Fold in walnuts. Spread half of this mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.
