German Chocolate cake has everything you could ever want in a cake! Decadent chocolate! Crazy amounts of coconut! Precious pecans! Oh, it’s so good! I remember the first time I saw one, I said to myself “that’s it? Where’s the frosting? You can’t have cake without frosting!” Then I took ONE bite. that’s all I needed to become a believer. The German really know what they’re doing when it comes to chocolate, and this cake is no exception! I ask my friend for the recipe and her response was basically “Nope! It’s a family secret!” Fine then, I’ll just find one online. THAT will show her! So I checked out All Recipes and found a great one. Check this out!
