How to make German Chocolate Cake
My Dad’s favourite was German Chocolate Cake with caramel, coconut pecan frosting. It’s fitting that German Chocolate Cake Day is so close to Father’s Day. This chocolate cake just melts in your mouth and the nutty frosting is sweet and satisfying. I make this as one big rectangular cake for sharing. You can make a layer cake but then double the frosting recipe so you have enough to sandwich in between the layers.
German Chocolate Cake is a great alternative to Mississippi Mud Cake which some people find too sweet. German Chocolate does have more of a balanced taste because of the butter nutty frosting. Additionally, this cake needs no accompaniment of ice cream, cream, custard or coulis because it is so soft and squidgy.
