German Chocolate Lazy Daisy Cake Recipe
Traditional German chocolate cake gets a whole new spin with this inventive version that's finished off under the high heat of the broiler instead of being frosted in layers. —Linda Schend, Kenosha, Wisconsin
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup butter, cubed
4 ounces German sweet chocolate, chopped
1-1/4 cups boiling water
3 large eggs
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup half-and-half cream
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 13x9-in. pan. In a bowl, combine oats, butter and chocolate; pour boiling water over top. Let stand 10 minutes.
Stir oatmeal mixture until combined; whisk in eggs and brown sugar. In another bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt; stir into oatmeal mixture just until combined.
Transfer to prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven. Preheat broiler.
Combine topping ingredients; spread over warm cake. Broil 4 in. from heat until lightly browned, 3-4 minutes.
Yield: 15 servings.
