      This recipe was amazing! I actually made 2 pans. One for home and one to take to our church youth group. I loved the frosting especially. These were a huge hit and can't wait to make them again for work! Sorry this review is also late. Peaches needed to get done - they refused to wait. lol Made for the September 2010 Aussie/NZ recipe swap. I will post pics later.

      Absolutely phenomenal recipe. I'm eating my second piece as I type. I may be biased becaue German chocolate cake is my favorite cake. I don't like the really sweet icing on regular cakes, but I love coconut pecan icing. I have never made coconut pecan icing from scratch, but this was really easy to make. I used fat free evaporated milk and the icing turned out perfect. I'm going to have to take the rest of these bars to work tomorrow or I'll eat the whole pan myself. Thanks for the yummy recipe, Dreamgoddess.
