Easy German Chocolate Cake
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 55 min. + cooling
I made this cake the other day for a German Shepherds 1 year bday party. No, the dogs didn't eat it. ;). It wasn't pretty but tasted ok. I thought that the butter/cream cheese mixture would somehow move to the bottom of the pan while baking. You know, to be with the pecans & coconut? Instead, as the cake baked and rounded across the top, the butter mixture dripped off and over the edge into the bottom of my oven. Not Good!When I realized that was happening I used a spatula to gouge long holes in the top of the cake so that the butter mixture would "sink in". The cake probably would have been even better if all of that mixture has blended in and down with the cake. What did I do wrong?
Used to make this w/ the residents at the nursing home. Only difference in the recipes was mine used 1 cup of coconut and only 2 cups powdered sugar. It was incredible!
