Coconut-Pecan Filling and Frosting

Coconut-Pecan Filling and Frosting recipe
photo by:kraft
This is, of course, the best reason to eat German chocolate cake. A sweet, caramely mix of coconut and pecans that can make you forget there's a whole dessert underneath it.

Amazing... a party in your mouth!!!
Since one of my sisters now needs gluten free foods, we have discovered that this frosting is almost as great over chocolate or vanilla ice cream as over the Baker's German's Chocolate Cake that has been our family tradition from our mother for about 50 years.
This icing is wonderful. The key to making this icing thick and not runny is getting it to a boil and constantly stir for 12 minutes. You have to be careful not to have it to high or it will boil over. If it looks like it is about to boil over remove it from heat for a couple seconds, but keep stirring and then return it to heat. You will notice it getting thicker and thicker. After it cools, it will be awesome.
Whew! goes. I had the same problem as the person that said the frosting was runny. I believe (after cooking it for an hour!) on an electric stove on 3, that it should be at least on a 4. I was very concerned about over heating the recipe and was very cautious. I believe that I will try this recipe again but start with a higher temperature. I did try a little trick-dissolving 1 teaspoon of cornstarch in 1 tablespoon of evaporated milk. I don't believe that had as much to do with thickening the recipe as turning up the heat did. I will try again and review again. Taste-delicious. Ease of recipe instructions...enh
I made this recipe for a cake that I made, I didn't use the recipe on Kraft for the cake. It started off okay but went downhill pretty quick. I followed the directions and the exact measurements. I let the "icing" sit to thicken and it was SO runny. In addition it just wasn't sweet tasting like icing. I attempted to thicken it with powdered sugar but it just didn't do the trick. I had to add so much powdered sugar that it basically doubled the size of the icing... I could have iced a dozen cakes. But why would I want to? It tasted and looked terrible. I wouldn't suggest buying canned icing, just a different recipe from another website.
The ONLY Coconut-Pecan Filling and Frosting worth making! 5 stars all the way>
This is my husband and Grandpa's fav kind of cake. I just made it for grandpas b day and everybody loved it. The frosting was awsome. I love it and its pretty easy to make.
This cake has been my favorite for more than 40 years. It was my favorite Auntie birthday present to me for years. When I relocated from MI to TX, she finally gave me this recipe so, I could have birthday cake anytime i wanted.
I've been making this recipe for about 10 yrs every Christmas and it is always a hit. Everyone seems to think it is the best German Chocolate Cake they have EVER tasted!!thanks;)
