Awesome cake! Couldn't eat enough of it. My family loved it also! So much better than mixes. Great with vanilla icecream served with it. Of couese, I can only splurge like this every once in a while.

FYI, The correct name of the cake is not "German Chocolate Cake", but rather "German's Sweet Chocolate Cake," named for the BRAND of chocolate used in it (German's Sweet Chocolate, made by Baker's), not from its country of origin. You will not find this cake in Germany.

Excellent! The only thing I may do different next time would be to toast the pecans. That's it! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Thank you for an awesome recipe! It was easy and delicious and looked beautiful! I use a springform pan that has a glass bottom, so it's even easier to serve and remain perfect. I also love that I have yet another recipe that I can make gluten free by omitting the bottom crust layer.

This is the birthday cake that my mother made me every year. Now that we live in different states I have to make it myself - and I do. I can't say enough good things about this recipe.

My MILs favorite cake is German chocolate cake. So for her birthday I decided to make her a cake. Her son (my brother in law) and I debated whether or not we should include the cocunut and pecans (we're not fans) and decided, hey if the recipe calls for it then lets go all in! This was my first cake from scratch and it was a huge success! I kept it in the oven for 43 minutes in 2 square pans. I prepped it just as suggested and it was happily devoured by 8 people, sometimes picky father in law had seconds! I think its important to use the cake flour and make sure you really whip those egg whites to guaruntee a delicate, fluffy cake. Great Recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Made this cake for my very good friend for his birthday. He said it was the best German Chocolate cake he had ever had. Everyone raved about it. Even my husband, who doesn't usually eat cake thought it was incredible.
