Homemade German Chocolate Cake Recipe

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I think the hundreds of reviews of this recipe speak for themselves, but let me add my own testament that this German Chocolate Cake is THE CAKE that every person in my family requested for their birthday growing up.

I was super lucky, being a twin, because my mom would make both of our favorites: German chocolate cake for my sister, and carrot cake for me!

What is German Chocolate Cake?
The name German chocolate cake is a little deceiving as it is not actually a German dessert and traditionally the cake is a lighter colored cake with a mild chocolate taste and the entire cake is usually covered in coconut pecan frosting.

My family’s version is a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting covering the cake and coconut frosting on top and in the center of the cake. This cake seriously can’t be beat, especially if you’re a chocolate lover!

This cake takes a bit of time and care to prepare but the result is worth all the effort.  The layers are rich, chocolatey and substantial enough to stand up well to the coconut-pecan frosting.

There is something magical about the combination of flavors and texture, and I swear I can eat spoonful’s of the frosting right out of the pan.

If there is any left in the pan after the cake is frosted what else can I do but finish it off.  This is a rich cake and I can almost guarantee it will satisfy even the most extreme sweet tooth.  Small slices with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream usually do it.
