This cake is delicious! I'm not a great baker but the directions were easy to follow and everyone loved it! This recipe does make a ton of cake though, which is bad because now I have no choice but to eat it!
My Mom used to make this cake when I was a child it was a favorite then too. I was able to share this family recipe with my children and now it is their favorite! We use a ganache frosting though!!!
My dad's favorite cake is German chocolate, so for his birthday I made him this recipe. It was a little tedious (as I am not an avid from-scratch cake maker) but it was really good and I didn't mess it up! I was surprised. SO yummy. Definitely do the three levels.
My sister and I are 3 years apart, (both born in March) and every year for about 50 years this is the ONLY cake we ever want!! It has become a tradition, she makes the filling, I bake the cake, we LOVE this cake...we take one bite and already decide we want another piece!!!
It's the best!!! Make sure to use the coconut pecan frosting that goes with it.
My grandma always made this for my grandpa in the 60s and 70s. She would bake it in a 9x13 and then freeze individual pieces for his lunch pail. I have always loved this cake and have made it for my mom's birthday every year since around 1980. She requests it every year. Her birthday is right around the corner, and I'll be making it for her 70th!
indescribeably delicious
my mother didn't cook, my father taught me what i know about cooking! i found the recipt inside a bakers chocolate package in the 1960's and i've always wondered if i could ever find the recipt again ... it's so very cool that i found it on the internet. this is an incredible cake - so incredible i've taken the time out of my hectic schedule to write and share with all that we have a favorite frosting to use with this cake - italian meringue - um delish! i'm so very greatful to have found this recipe again. thank you kraft!
I have made this cake many times and it is always a hit. It is very easy to make and even easier to enjoy. EXCELLENT choice for entertaining or special occasions. Easily adaptable to sheet cake for large gatherings too.
This has been a longtime favorite of my family for 40+ yrs. I added coffee to my melted chocolate, which produced a hearty aroma for the coffee-choco-holic in me.
