German Chocolate Cake
4 oz Baker's German Chocolate
1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 egg yolks
4 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups cake flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
Mix German chocolate with the boiling water, stir until mixed well. Set aside
Mix butter and sugae until fluffy. Slowly add egg yolks while the mixture is beating. Mix until no more yellow is evident. Add chocolate mixture and vanilla.
Sift flour and add baking soda and salt.
Alternate adding the milk and the flour mixture to your butter mixture as it is beating. Mix until smooth.
In another mixer or bowl, beat your egg whites until fluffy! May take about 5 minutes!
After they are fluffy, very slowly FOLD them into the cake batter!
You will need to grease and flour 3 cake pans! I put wax paper in the bottem of mine!
Now divide the batter evenly between the 3 pans.
Bake in PRHEATED oven at 350 for 30-40 minutes! Test with a toothpick!
When finished let cool on a cooling rack!
1 cup evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
3 beaten egg yolks
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups coconut
2 cups ROASTED chopped pecans
In a mediun sauce pan, combine all ingredients except the coconut and the pecans. Cook for 12 minutes on medium heat. Stir constantly or it will stick. Add coconut and pecans!
I usually end up using more but I just keep adding the coconut and pecans until I get the consistency that I want! Let cool!
When cool, frost the cake!
Add frosting in between all layers and then cover the top! I ALWAYS double the recipe to make sure that I have enough!!!!!
