    Mimi in Maine's Note:

    This is the recipe on the box of German Chocolate. It is delicious and moist. You can make it in three layers like the traditional one, or in a 9x13 pan which is so easy. Then frost with Coconut-Pecan Frosting.

      This is just the recipe I was looking for. I made a German Chocolate cake for my hubby's birthday in August then I lost the recipe. This is the exact one I used. I am soooo happy. This is the best German Chocolate cake you will ever eat and be sure and make the frosting that Mimi recommends. You will love this cake. Thanks Mimi!!!!!!
