Baked this cake for my fiance. He loves it. I love it! :) Will bake this cake again. Cheers!
This is a very popular cake in my family. I make it with cake flour and not all purpose. It always comes out perfect. I would highly recommend it, it is time consuming but definitely worth it.
I've made this recipe for many years and it always turns out flawless. Hands down, it is the best and most impressive German Chocolate cake around. Some tips: Use good cake pans and *parchment paper* is your friend, not waxed. Don't forget to add the egg whites, which seems to have happened w/one of the reviewers. This cake should not fall. Did you beat the egg whites thoroughly? Altitude and humidity can sometimes make a difference. Make any adjustments if you're using a convection oven. Keep the oven door closed. If you must check, look through the oven window instead. We're chocolate lovers, so along w/ the pecan-coconut frosting, I make a soft whipped chocolate ganache. This cake is incredibly moist and decadent - worth every minute it takes to make.
My son will be 40 the 30th and I have been making this cake for 45 plus years. Everyone looks forward to having a piece when it is done. The best time to eat this is after it sets for a day.
I have made this cake with the frosting for my husband every year since we have been married, this is the 39th year! It's his favorite. I have never had an issue with it! I sometime make it with round layers and sometimes I just do a 9x13 pan.
My family has been using this recipe for years! it is the only one we trust and it comes out delicious every time.
Well, its time consuming. I followed to a T and it tastes blah (the frosting is good though) and it fell. Like in half. Totally a waste of time seeing as it doesn't even taste that good unless you douse it in frosting. Waste of calories and effort:(
This cake is amazing! Instead of using 3 round pans I just used one big round pan. I did not use wax paper just sprayed the sides and bottom and it came out perfect without breaking. It did take longer to bake, like 20 minutes.
My family begs for this cake every Thanskgiving and Christmas. I use the extra egg white in the cake mix. Delicious every time I make it.
My cake fell in the middle. Should I have used cake flour and NOT all purpose flour? Also, if you put 4 egg yolks in the cake batter and use 4 egg yolks in the icing, you have 4 extra egg whites!
