      Susie, this recipe is wonderful. I made it with Bakers Sweet German Chocolate so I reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups. I would give it 10 stars if I could. I frosted it with the regular German Chocolate frosting....the one with coconut and pecans. It is a winner. I'll never make German Chocolate Cake the other way again. This recipe is much easier and I like that I can bake it in a bundt pan. Decadence is an understatement!
