READY IN: 1hr 10mins

This is a quick, easy version of a German chocolate cake. Great for a pot luck dinner--travels well, no messy frosting to deal with.

This is a great cake - love the flavors and truly is very easy. We only did a pumpkin custard for Thanksgiving and had this cake to go with it. Made a nice alternative...thanks for posting!
