Delicious! I made this for myself for Mother's Day in a 9x13 pan. It was wonderful...took about 45 min. or so to bake. Wouldn't change a of my all-time favorites.
I love sweets, but this cake was over the top too sweet for me. It was very tender and looked spectacular presented in a beautiful cake dish. I found it to be a lot of work mainly in pots and pans that it requires. Froze each cake layer separately wrapped in plastic wrap and then in a zip loc bag. The day before I needed the cake, I made the filling and refrigerated it. I also put the cake layers in the fridge to thaw out while still wrapped. The day I needed the cake I let the filling come to room temp and assembled the cake while it was stil cold. I had more than enough filling with some left over, but I did not cover the sides.
this cake is delicious. My husband loves German Chocolate Cake, so I thought instead of box I would try one homemade. He loved it. Asked how I got it so moist and spongy. Told him it had to be the egg whites added in at the last. Made 9x13 so if anyone makes the 9x13 it does have to cook longer. Ended up cooking a total of about 50 minutes in glass 9x13.
One word...AMAZING!!
I LOVE this cake! I've been making it since I was a teenager. It's very moist and delicious. To the reviewer who said the cake is "nasty and dry as dust," either she just doesn't like this cake or she's making it wrong (maybe baking it too long?).
This cake is FABULOUS. NO WAY is it dry as dust...reviewer must have obviously done something wrong. I have made this exact recipe for years without one failure. This cake is moist and delicious. Believe the overwhelming reviews of how good this cake truly is! A family favorite requested for almost any occasion.
My husband loves this cake and I've made it more than two dozen times. The icing is wonderful. The cake itself is nasty and dry as dust. I was searching the internet for some means of fixing that when I stumbled across these reviews and felt the need to set the record straight.
Outstanding! The best German Chocolate cake I have ever had or made. It is very moist and is my family's favorite cake. I usually make it as a bundt cake and it turns out perfectly every time.
I have been baking this cake 2 to 3 times per year since 1971! A yummy classic family favorite. I'm baking it today in honor of my son's 35th birthday. It's extra special to be doing so as my other son and family, who live in Minnesota, arrive today and will be enjoying it with us!
This recipe is such a CLASSIC! It doesn't get any better. My mom made this cake when I was a little girl and I remember her keeping one in the freezer when company would drop in, but I also remember her grabbing a knife and her and I would sneak downstairs to the freezer and cut a slice....oh what memories! And I still make this over 40 years later. In the original recipe it called for cake flour anyway it's YUMMY!!!
